The Birmingham Whisky Club are beating the January blues this month by raising a dram (or several) to Rabbie Burns’.
Burns’ Night is the annual celebration in honour of Scottish poet Robert Burns’. If you haven’t attended a Burns Night event before, expect haggis based feasting, lashings of Scottish whisky, poetry, dancing and even a wee bit bagpipe music.
On Burns’ night itself (Wednesday 25th January), the club are hosting a whisky and food matching event at The Plough, Harborne. Expect a fantastic four course feast, matched to delicious whiskies from Ian Macleod distillers and expert advice along the way.
On Saturday 28th January, the club are hosting their biggest celebration in their whisky-soaked history at the beautiful Rowheath Pavilion in Bournville. In the afternoon they’re hosting a ‘family friendly’ session, where guests are invited to tuck into a delicious meal, enjoy music from the award-winning Burdock Ceilidh band and a whisky (or a wee nipper for the kids). In the evening, join them for a full three-course Scottish feast, lashings of award-winning Glen Grant whisky, a live bagpiper and two sessions of led Ceilidh dancing.
Amy Seton (owner of The Birmingham Whisky Club) had this to say, “Burns’ Night is a huge celebration in the Scottish whisky calendar, so we knew we had to throw something big to mark it. We’re very pleased to be working with Ian Macleod Distillers and Glen Grant whiskies to bring a taste of Scotland to the heart of the Midlands this January.”
Tickets for both events are now on sale and more information on the Ceilidh can be found here. To find out more about The Birmingham Whisky Club and all of their upcoming events, head to their website www.thebirminghamwhiskyclub.co.uk.
