To celebrate Burns Night on 25 January, the world’s most awarded single malt scotch whisky, Glenfiddich, has teamed up with four of the UK’s best restaurants to offer dine at home experiences like no other.
With specially curated menus from Hame by Adam Handling (nationwide), Five March (Glasgow), Opus (Birmingham) and The Little Chart Room (Edinburgh) (pictured), each package will be accompanied with a tasting kit of Glenfiddich’s celebrated 12, 15 and 18 Year-Old bottles, as well as a virtual whisky tasting with Glenfiddich's Brand Ambassadors who will explore each whisky and share their expertise.
For every dining experience purchased, Glenfiddich will donate £10 to either The Drinks Trust or The BEN in Scotland, as part of the William Grant & Sons’ UK #STANDFAST campaign to support the On Trade and Hospitality industry. Adam Handling will also match this for any of the ‘Hame by Adam Handling’ kits sold.
Alex Walker, Glenfiddich National Brand Ambassador, said, “Without a doubt people are still wanting to celebrate Burns Night across the UK and what better way to do it than with a dram of Glenfiddich whisky in your hand!
'We’ve worked closely with each restaurant to re-imagine modern Burns Night menus and completed them with our picks of Glenfiddich whisky, all whilst supporting the hospitality industry that are missing out on customers this Burns Night.”

Hame by Adam Handling (Nationwide)

Kicking off with his signature chicken butter and sourdough bread, the menu will include a delicious starter of roasted scallops, black pudding and hazelnut butter.
Following on will be Adam’s own interpretation of the classic ‘haggis, neeps and tatties’ – a Lamb Wellington with chilly neeps, crispy tots, and a whisky and peppercorn sauce. And for dessert will be a wonderfully light but decadent chocolate and cranachan mousse cake.
To round off the celebrations, the Burns Night box will include a 500ml bottle of a bespoke Glenfiddich cocktail, featuring Glenfiddich’s Fire & Cane, from Adam’s award-winning Eve Bar.
