As whisky and poetry lovers across the world prepare to celebrate the life and work of iconic Scottish poet, Robert Burns on Thursday 25 January, Loch Lomond and Glen Scotia Single Malt brand ambassador, Ibon Mendiguren has crafted a selection of classic cocktails with a twist for Burns Night 2018.


  • 50ml Glen Scotia Double Cask single malt
  • 15ml honey water
  • 15ml Pedro Ximénez sherry
  • Dash of orange bitters
  • Orange zest to garnish


The Proud Mary cocktail pays tribute to Robert Burns’ love interest, Mary who lived opposite the Glen Scotia distillery in Campbeltown and was born and bred in the town.

The Glen Scotia Double Cask is one of the sweetest Glen Scotia expressions, matured in first-fill bourbon barrels before being finished in Pedro- Ximénez sherry casks, providing the perfect balance of spicy fruits, sea spray and vanilla.


In a mixing glass, add 50ml of Glen Scotia Double Cask whisky.

Add the 15ml of honey water and Pedro Ximénez sherry.

Add a dash of orange bitters and stir well to blend the flavours.

Pour into a coup glass, garnish with orange zest and serve.
