Isle of Arran Distillers announce Burns Unbroke events

Isle of Arran Distillers have announced the launch of their partnership with the brand new, multi-arts Robert Burns Festival: Burns Unbroke.

Isle of Arran Distillers have announced the launch of their partnership with the brand new, multi-arts Robert Burns Festival: Burns Unbroke. The Scottish distillers will be hosting a series of masterclasses throughout the inaugural celebration, and a cocktail reception at the Festival’s opening night.

Burns Unbroke will be run for six weeks at Edinburgh’s Summerhall from 25th January. The festival will celebrate with a plethora of artists and performers offering their interpretations of the life and work of Robert Burns.

The VIP opening night of the festival will take place on Wednesday 24th January, with guests being welcomed for an evening reception with cocktails inspired by The Bard himself. Guests can indulge in two bespoke drinks created by specialist on-trade agency, The Drink Cabinet, using Arran Whisky’s Robert Burns Malt - a most fitting way to kick off the Burns Unbroke Festival celebrations.

Arran Distillery will also be hosting masterclass tastings on select dates throughout the festival. Hosted by Isle of Arran Distillery’s experienced and friendly staff, festival-goers will have the opportunity to taste and discover the inspiration and craft behind the five drams of ‘Arran Waters’; with samples from the award winning Arran Malt range, including the Arran liqueur, and of course the infamous Robert Burns Malt - the only whisky endorsed by the World Burns Federation.

James MacTaggart, Master Distiller at Isle of Arran Distillery, said: “As the producer of the official Robert Burns Malt, we were delighted to be involved in a festival that shares our passion for the poet.
At Arran, we regard whisky making as a form of story telling. Each of our expressions take inspiration from the landscape, history and legends of the island we call home.

We’re really looking forward to sharing these stories with festival goers and, of course, raising a glass to the Bard.”

Sheilagh Tennant, Burns Unbroke Director, says “Just as ‘ freedom an' whisky gang thegither’, so too does Burns Unbroke and a quality dram.

The Arran masterclasses will be a great chance for people to learn more about the history and heritage of our national drink, and we are looking forward to enjoying the cocktails inspired by their whisky and Burns himself on our opening night.”
