BURNS NIGHT EXTRAVAGANZA
AN EVENING OF WHISKY & WORDS WITH SIMPLY WHISKY

WHISKY TASTING WITH SIMPLY WHISKY
“Oh thou, my muse! guid auld Scotch drink!”
Join us for a colourful hour of scotch drink this Burns Night. The evening commences with an original whisky cocktail, Lads & Lassies, in the stunning cocktail bar. Proceed down to the subterranean surrounds of Below & Hidden where we’ll celebrate the genius of Robert Burns with a colourful rendition of Burns’ “Scotch Drink” accompanied by a tasting of five fine whiskies.
Kicking off with a welcome reception in the stunning cocktail bar complete with a traditional Scots piper, guests will be led through to the decadently clad Greenhouse and Garden Room for an indulgent five course Burns Night supper created by Head Chef Anthony Horn.
Haud yer wheesht! as the Master of Ceremonies begins proceedings with a recital of the Selkirk Grace, as tradition wonts. The haggis will be piped in, addressed and toasted, the immortal memory enacted, all with a lively accompaniment of live music. Those of a more extrovert disposition can participate in The Burns Factor and try their hand at reciting some of the poet’s trickier verses. The dinner will draw to a close with a Toast to the Lassies, Lassie’s Reply, a vote of thanks and a rendition of Auld Lang Syne. The festivities then continue as guests have an opportunity to get fair puckled dancing the Eightsome Reel, Strip the Willow and other traditional ceilidh favourites.
On the night, diners have the option to sate their druth, pairing their meal with a special selection of cocktails and spirits.
Lang may yer lum reek!
