Burns night special - Your toast to the future

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!

Highland park 12 - single malt scotch whisky

Whose night?

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.


Highland park 12

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.

Last year, over 500 poems arrived in our letterbox. Here are a few:

I pour golden Scotch Into shining silver flasks Precious metal kiss
The world is on fire,I pour some whiskey over iceAnd I am at peace
I drink scotch with ice The taste burns my throat too much Please do not judge me
Smoke and sea Salt and peat Worries take a leave
