We often get asked which whisky did Burns drink. From his poem ‘Scotch Drink’, we know that Burns enjoyed the finest whisky of his day from a famed Highlands distillery called Ferintosh – alas closed in the 18th century due to its tax bill. But what do we know about Ferintosh’s whisky?
We know that its whisky was considered smooth for its time and peaty, and the distillery may have experimented with ageing whiskies in sherry casks. Traditionally, Burns Night events provide peated and non-peated whiskies. So, how can we help?
Here in Whisky Kingdom, our in-house expert has chosen a variety of fine whiskies which we think closely reflect and celebrate the spirit of Robert Burns and his times.
