On this episode of Scran we look at the delightful ways to celebrate Burns night but doing so in a vegan manner.
We are very excited to share with you a Burns poem to celebrate the national bard, read by none other than Scottish actor James Cosmo.
VisitScotland kindly shared this recording with us having carried out research this year that showed the piece featured in this episode, 'To a Mouse', is in fact Scotland's favourite Burns poem.
Rosalind speaks to Peter Holroyd from Kingsbarns distillery who gives us the history of this small, family-run distillery and his recommendation for the kind of whisky he would choose for any haggis pairing.
Finally Rosalind chats to Diana Thompson from Wine Events Scotland who you may remember from previous episodes of Scran. Diana gets into some of the technical side of why some wine is vegan and some isn't.
We hope you enjoy our celebration of Burns - slainte mhath!
We’d love to hear from you for the next season’s episodes.
