The SMWS Edinburgh Burns Night Cocktail Menu


24th January 2020
The Scotch Malt Whisky Society venue at Queen Street, Edinburgh are celebrating Burns Night with a huge menu of Bobby Burns cocktails, using some of the rarest single malt whisky in their collection.

The SMWS Edinburgh Burns Night Cocktails

This is perhaps a less traditional way to toast Scotland's national bard Robert Burns who was known for his love and appreciation of whisky but I thought I would share this with you anyway. The Scotch Malt Whisky Society venue at 28 Queen Street, Edinburgh are celebrating Burns Night a little differently by offering the capital’s largest "Bobby Burns" cocktail menu, using single malt whiskies from the Society's 12 flavour profiles.

They tell me that the iconic cocktail can be varied to perfectly suit any taste as it uses Scotch whisky as its main ingredient, along with vermouth and a splash of liqueur, often Benedictine.

The Society’s catalogue of unique single cask single malt whiskies, which are all categorised by flavour, allow for the customisation of the drink. Whisky lovers can experiment with twelve twists on their tipple with flavour profiles ranging from Old & Dignified to Young & Spritely.

A lighter whisky makes for a refreshing drink with citrus notes, whereas a more matured malt will allow for a much sweeter Bobby Burns variation.

The sumptuous cocktail’s true origins remain unclear, with the first known recipes for it appearing in the 1930 ‘The Savoy Cocktail Book’ and initial popularity in New York, however it is now drunk to toast the famous bard’s birthday annually.

The Scotch Malt Whisky Society will be running their ultimate Bobby Burns menu at their venue at 28 Queen Street, Edinburgh, from 22nd Jan to 2nd Feb.

If you don't fancy a cocktail and would like to raise a glass of one of the Society's unique single cask bottlings to toast Rabbie Burns you will find the latest membership offers and bottlings here The Scotch Malt Whisky Society Website
