Hosting the perfect Burns Supper

robert_burns

So how do you host the perfect Burns Supper?  Across the globe we celebrate the life and works of our famous Scottish Bard on the 25th January.  Haggis, neaps and tatties followed by clootie dumpling are standard, but it is the additional treats that will make a special night.

In Geraldo’s of Largs we have a wide range of malt whiskies to toast Robert Burns.  We also stock deliciously moist Whisky Cakes and a wide range of Scottish shortbread to nibble on during the Burns recitals.  Here are some recommendations…..

Robert Burns Single Malt

This is the official Isle of Arran Distillery Single Malt endorsed by The Robert Burns World Federation. Made from 70% Bourbon Casks and 30% Sherry Casks, this light aromatic Single Malt is ideal for drinking with your haggis.

Ashers Whisky Cakes

Choose from 3 single malt Ashers Whisky Cakes. Deliciously moist fruit cakes laced with single malt whisky from the Highlands, Islands & Speyside.

Shortbread House of Edinburgh

The perfect accompaniment to a wee dram has to be shortbread.  Shortbread House of Edinburgh pride themselves on making everything by hand to ensure that the taste, texture and appearance is far superior to mass produced products.

If you need some more suggestions on how to host your own Burns Supper, have a look at Visit Scotland’s guide.  No matter how you celebrate our great Bard, the main thing is to have fun.  We’ll raise a glass to that!

Slainte!

 

Calling all Land Rover enthusiasts!

WOW!  Stewart’s have surpassed themselves with their new range of luxury shortbread tins this year. These beautifully-embossed tins feature iconic images and are filled with delicious Scottish shortbread. They’re a fantastic gift for Father’s Day or perhaps an uncle, brother or difficult-to-buy-for birthday gift for your Dad. Their nostalgic charm makes them an ideal gift for enthusiasts and collectors too and it’s the best range of gift tins we’ve come across for men – at last!!!

This is one of their new edition releases this year to complement last year’s smaller tin featuring the Land Rover Defender.

It’s too late now to order from us online for Father’s Day this year but still plenty of time to pop into the shop and browse the selection we have if you’re still looking for ideas before Sunday.

Oh, and before I forget, if you’re a REAL Landy enthusiast and you’re on Facebook why not LIKE The Gas Station Café in Cumnock and/or drop by on Sunday, 22nd of June 2013 and see the real thing for yourself.  All Land Rover owners and enthusiasts are welcome to come along and join in the planned road run around some of the local sites.

See you there!
