Firstly, I’d like to say wish every a Happy New Year and what better way to start it than with a traditional Burns Night celebration! We’re supporting the annual ‘Highdown Vineyard Burns Night’ which takes place on Friday 24th January. This local Vineyard in Ferring West Sussex, puts on a fantastic evening with traditional Scottish delights and a host of mouth-watering Whiskies! The Scottish themed food and drinks is of course to celebrate the late great poet, Robert Burns.

The highlight of the evening is sure to be the Whisky Tasting (well we think so anyway!). Remember, good quality whisky should be served in the correct glassware, to really enjoy and maximise the taste. The Glencairn Official Whisky glass is found globally around the World and is the must have and must use Whisky glass.

The Glencairn Official Whisky Glass

This unique glass is internationally known and appreciated as the must use glass for drinking whisky. It is used by connoisseurs, experts and master blenders around the World and is highly praised by all. The glass has a unique shape that enhances the enjoyment of single malts and aged blends alike, while the solid and sturdy base allows you comfortable grip and hold so you can really appreciate the whiskies colour and strong aromas. In 2006, The Glencairn Whisky glass received the converted Queen’s Award for innovation.

Wineware are proud stockists of this magnificent whisky glass, defined and enhanced to really give you the best whisky experience as possible!

Fun Whisky Fact: It’s rumoured that the Jack Daniel’s company (in Tennessee) give a free bottle to every employee on the first Friday of every month!
