The World’s Most Famous Whisky Poet

The World’s Most Famous Whisky Poet

Winter in Scotland is cold, gray, and seemingly never ending. But one the highlights of the bleak season is the birthday of Scotland’s national poet Robert Burns. Centuries after his birth, folks still gather to joyously recite his poems, eat haggis and, of course, drink Scotch.

In honor of Burns' birthday, Flaviar recently partnered with Highland Park Whisky to hold a contest to find the best original poems about Scotch. On this episode of Fix Me a Drink, hosts David Wondrich and Noah Rothbaum are joined by Martin Markvardsen, the Senior Brand Ambassador for Highland Park, to announce the three winning poems. They also discuss the life of Burns and why he’s still so important to Scottish culture today.

So pour yourself a glass of whisky and listen to this new episode of Fix Me a Drink. Sláinte!
