Drink A Toast To 250 Years Of Robert Burns
Not too many people here in the U.S. celebrate Burns Night (January 25) but what's not to like about a holiday that involves poetry and whisky? The 2009 Burns Night marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Scotland's national poet. Whisky producer, Isle of Arran Distillers, has released a limited edition bottling of its Single Malt - 250th Anniversary Robert Burns Malt. Fifteen ex-Sherry casks were selected from the 1998 distillation by Distillery Manager, James MacTaggart, for the bottling, with just 1,800 bottles available in the UK. The whisky sells for £49.99.
