My heart's in the Highlands, wherever I go - Robert Burns
We’re ready for a wee celebration! Burns Night is coming up on 25th January and we’re ready to celebrate Scotland’s National Bard, Robert Burns, on what would have been his 263rd birthday. From traditional Scottish grub at a Burns Supper or the best of Scottish produce to sample and plenty of whisky to enjoy, there’s a way you can enjoy Burns Night here in Herts...
Celebrate Burns Night in the highest style at The Grove, London’s Country Estate, as they tempt you with the finest Scottish cuisine complete with haggis and Scottish piper – and of course, delectable Scotch Whisky to match! With Vegetarian options available, Dundee Cake on offer for dessert and a free dram of whisky to those who sport a tarten getup, celebrate the best of the highlands in Herts this January.
Waxhouse Whisky was started by the founding members of St Albans Whisky Society who meet regulary to taste, try and connect over their love of the spirit! These whisky connoisseurs pulled their expertise to make their very own batches of whisky – and named it after iconic Waxhouse Gate to commemorate their St Albans heritage! An ode to Scotland made right here in Herts is the perfect way to celebrate locally this year...
Book yourself and loved ones in for a traditional Burns Night dinner including haggis and Scottish salmon at The Three Moorhens Hitchin to celebrate on Tuesday 25th January. When you book to dine with them, you’ll be automatically entered into their prize draw with Glenfiddich, the World’s Most Awarded single malt whisky to win one of their highly coveted gift bags! And did we mention it's all four courses for just £18.99? Run, don't walk!
Celebrating at home this year? Pick up your much needed beverage of choice from St Albans’ Tomoka Spirits Boutique. Like Waxhouse Whisky, the beginnings of this local store can be traced back to a conversation between three friends over a bottle of aged single malt whisky – and their love of the spirit grew to their specialist boutique today in Christopher Place Shopping Centre. We’ll be heading there for their expert Scotch advice to see us through our Burns Night celebration!
If you’re not a lover of haggis and the traditional Burns night dinner, there’s still a way to enjoy the very best of Scotland’s rich produce in Herts – Rickmansworth and St Albans’ classic New York Steakhouse Prime Steak and Grill serves the highest quality ethically reared beef from the highlands of Scotland, grilled to perfection and then combined with a delicious serving of sizzling sides and a curated cocktail menu.
