BURNS Night is a time to celebrate all the great things this country has to offer - traditional Scottish food, good whisky and even better company - all in honour of Scotland’s favourite poet, Robert Burns.

Choosing the right whisky to impress your guests or even just to enjoy yourself, can often be a little challenging, especially when trying to ensure you pick the right one to compliment your Burns supper.

The Scotsman’s Sean Murphy along with Ewan Henderson of Scotch Broth events and Frank Murphy of the Potstill whisky bar in Glasgow discuss pairing traditional Scottish food including smoked mussels, haggis and cranachan with great whiskies like Springbank, Arran and Glendronach to create great flavour combinations for you to enjoy on Burns night.
