Robert Burns, Scotland’s celebrated poet and lyricist, was born 251 years ago as of January 25th. What better way to celebrate the anniversary of his birth than with a dram? Sure, I suppose you could sing Auld Lang Syne — one of Robbie’s many poems/songs – while you’re drinking. But most importantly, don’t miss out on all the great tastings happening in your area.
Firstly, check out your local liquor store for tasting events — a few of the BC Liquor Stores have tastings going on in the next week or two. The Peninsula Village location is having a Bruichladdich tasting on Friday, Jan. 22 between 3 and 7pm and Saturday Jan. 23 between 2 and 6pm.
Also, there will be 3 producers from 3 different Nations hosting a dinner and tasting on the 25th (Monday) at Cascade lounge on Main Street. I have attached the poster which has the details of how to order tickets to the event. Full size pdf here.
