Atlanta Burns Supper with Brown Forman
January 24, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
Price all Inclusive
YOU ARE INVITED to help us celebrate Robert Burns’ 261st birthday! Due to the initiative of Amber Aristy, Brown-Forman’s GA executive, Atlanta will be joining in the worldwide observation of Rabbie’s birthday with a memorial dinner tasting.
Our evening will feature a 4-course dinner prepared by chefs Shaun Doty and Lance Gummere as well as a welcoming cocktail and appetizers.
Did I mention 6 single malts from 3 of Scotland’s top distilleries? In 2016, Brown-Forman purchased the BenRiach, GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh malt whisky distilleries. They are 3 drams that make for a great way to celebrate Rabbie’s birthday! From BenRiach (Speyside), we’ll taste 10-year, 21-year Classic and 21-year Temporis. We’ll add GlenDronach (Highland) 12-year The Original (*if our shipment arrives in time, GD-15 or GD-18 will be substituted for GD-12). From Glenglassaugh (Highland), let’s try Revival and
Evolution. After adding a bagpiper, swordsman, and poets, you’re assured of having a splendid evening, one that would make old Rabbie proud.
So, do please come along and bring a friend! Often referred to as “The Bard of Ayrshire”, Robert Burns (1759-1796) wrote Auld Lang Syne; A Red, Red Rose; A Man’s a Man for A’ That; To a Louse; To a Mouse; The Battle of Sherramuir; Tam o’ Shanter; and Ae Fond Kiss. In August 1787, Lady Catherine Bruce knighted the late Robert Burns at Clackmannan Tower with the sword of her illustrious ancestor, Robert the Bruce. As neither the Stuart or Hanover clan thought much of the Bruces, Rabbie remains a commoner.
