In celebration of Burns Night on Saturday 25th January, East London cocktail bar, The Sun Tavern is honouring everything great about Scotland with a special collaboration alongside Craigellachie Whisky. For a day of unmissable events, the teams are joining forces to bring guests all the Scottish classics, including a daytime Craigellachie whisky tasting experience, a Scotch cocktail menu from Iain McPherson of Edinburgh’s famous Panda & Sons and free haggis balls from the legendary Deeney’s, ready to raise a glass to the National Bard himself.

Notoriously one of the busiest days of the year, The Sun Tavern will kick off the celebrations with Scotch expert Andrea Montaque, hosting a daytime Whisky Tasting exploring the flavour profiles and distinctive traits of Craigellachie, 13yr, 17yr and the much sought after 23yr. As the Burns Night celebrations take hold, Iain McPherson, owner of Edinburgh’s award-winning Panda & Sons will be jumping behind the bar and serving up a special menu of his Scotch favourites created especially for the occasion, including a Hot Chocolate Punch with Craigellachie 13, Coconut, Cacao, Cinnamon and Orange and a McCliché with Craigellachie 13, Irn Bru, Fluffed Rhubarb, Lemon and Bitters. The menu will also feature an impeccable selection of cocktails created by The Sun Tavern exclusively for Burns Night including the Afton Water with Craigellachie 13yr, Poitín, Amaro Montenegro, Honey, Toasted Pecan Bitters – named for the dainty river in Ayrshire, the subject of Rabbie Burns’ poem of the same name.
