Celebrate Burns Night with Talisker Whisky

Your author loves a freebie, and when he was treated to a very pleasant pre-Burns-night celebration by Talisker Whisky, one of Diageo's many brands, last Wednesday he very much enjoyed it. It was a great evening with whisky, haggis and a lot of Scottishness.

Burns night itself is tomorrow, and Talisker are attempting to ensure their market share on the most Scottish of occasions by hosting burns nights around the country and giving away free 'rocking glasses'.

Your author isn't too sure about the glasses - having dropped a full one over himself last Wednesday - but it's the perfect excuse for a celebration, and for Scots, January 25th is a bit special the world over.

So, in the words of the promotional material, 'it’s the night we get together and raise our glasses to the much-loved Scottish poet and songwriter, Robert ‘Rabbie’ Burns'

Talisker are holding their burns nights in West Hampstead, Hammersmith, Twickenham and Kingston. To find your nearest, click here, or for more click here.
