Gie him strong drink until he wink,
That’s sinking in despair;
An’ liquor guid to fire his bluid,
That’s prest wi’ grief and care:
There let him bouse, an’ deep carouse,
Wi’ bumpers flowing o’er,
Till he forgets his loves or debts,
An’ minds his griefs no more.
Happy Robbie Burns Day!
A few items to get you celebrating your Robbie Burns Day with style. First, an awesome gift set for the Macallan lover out there. As part of their Private Collection, Macallan has released a 12 year old Macallan gift set which includes two coasters highlighting the scotch makers past. The scotch itself is one of the richest single malts available so sit back and enjoy. Only $90 and available here.
Second item, although scotch should be sipped at around room temperature, there are those who prefer to drink it cold. However, instead of adding ice and diluting your scotch, why not try whiskey stones. These ice replacements are specially designed to cool your Whiskey. Just put them in the freezer for a few hours and then pop a couple into a glass of single malt. Once you’re done, rinse, dry and do it all over again! The whisky stones are handcrafted in Vermont at the oldest soapstone workshop in the United States. Visit the Whiskey Stones website here or purchase a set of 9 over at Amazon.
Finally, a little guide on how to drink scotch whiskey properly.
