For last year's Burns Night, we teamed up with Highland Park to find the best poem inspired by Scotland.
Get into the literary tradition with us again and come up with the finest toast to go with an Orkney Scotch! (A salutation, not bread, obvs.) So go forth, pen a pledge, and win a reward!
Burns Night (or Oidhche na Taigeise) is an annual celebration of Robert Burns, Scotland's greatest rhymer.
Each January 25, followers of the Bard gather for a tradition that involves a bagpiper, speeches, haggis (and addressing it), a bunch of food, poetry - and toasts made with Whisky. The attendees toast Rabbie, the lassies, and the laddies. It all wraps up with "Auld Lang Syne" and is, in general, a big whoopee.
A good "May You" deserves an opulent dram. Behold, Highland Park 12 Year Old! The multi-award-winning Single Malt matured in sherried oak for a dozen years, surrounded by contrasting Orkney elements. It is a wild harmony of flavors, a passionate dance of Seville oranges and fruitcake, nutmeg and cloves, heather honey and peaty smoke. Highland Park 12 is a Scotch with terroir and tradition. The decadent Orkney deluge of flavors will make even half-hearted toasts glorious.Buy now
Highland Park is the northernmost Single Malt distillery in Scotland that found its home on Orkney over 220 years ago. They blend the Viking history, ancient know-how, and the natural elements of the archipelago into one of the most unique Whiskies. Their award-winning expressions possess distinct characteristics and an unmistakable HP essence in every sip, are regularly lauded by the pros, and are among the most sought-after by Whisky collectors.Explore more
