Burns Night in Australia
I’m always surprised at how much we sell at this time of year.
January 25, if you didn’t know is Burns Night (and please be aware that I just cheekily copied this straight from Wikipedia as I’m no Burns night expert).
A Burns supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, the author of many Scots poems. The suppers are normally held on or near the poet’s birthday, 25 January.
The supper can be formal or informal but must involve at least haggis, recitation of Burns’ poems and of course… whisky! The formal suppers are strict in tradition and include bag pipes, dancing, speeches and several courses.
Our haggis is made by Pacdon Park, the only Australian award winning haggis. It is not readily available so we can’t guarantee how long we will have it in stock in the lead up to Burns Night. If you’d like some, best be quick. It’s not available online at this time.
