Pull out your plaid and cue up the bagpipes because it’s Clover’s third-ever celebration of Burns Night, an introduction to Scottish food/drink/music/poetry and a reason to raise a glass during this dark and cold month! You may be asking yourself, what is Burns Night? And maybe even looking twice at your calendar, like huh…I didn’t know we had a holiday on January 25th.
Robert Burns was a rule-breaking Scottish poet born on a farm, whose words have become infamous (ever heard of a little tune called Auld Lang Syne?) He also wrote a poem dedicated to a haggis (so…enough said, we love him). Burns died young, in 1796, but his friends wanted to make sure his memory lived on. So they started throwing raucous suppers or Burns Nights every year on his birthday (January 25th) to read his poems, play guitar and bagpipe, eat haggis, and drink Scotch. The Burns Night Tradition spread throughout the world, even landing on the doors of our friend, Chef Jason Bond.
Your Burns Night box will be packed with a 6-course Scottish party in a box that will come together in less time than it takes to enjoy a snifter of Scotch whisky, neat (Scotch not included but ask us for some recommendations).
