Highland Whisky and Gin

Alasdair Hutton presents a poem by Robert Burns to go with the single malt whisky

Scotch Drink

von Robert Burns,1785

Gie him strong drink until he wink, 

That's sinking in despair; 

An' liquor guid to fire his bluid, 

That's prest wi' grief and care: 

There let him bouse, an' deep carouse, 

Wi' bumpers flowing o'er, 

Till he forgets his loves or debts, 

An' minds his griefs no more. 

Highland Whiskies

Highland single malts are single malt Scotch whiskies produced in the Highland region of Scotland. This categorization includes the whiskies produced on the islands around the perimeter of Scotland (the Island single malts), except for Islay (see Islay whisky). Incongruously, the area also includes certain lowland areas in the North-East of the country such as Banffshire and Aberdeenshire.
