Scotland celebrates the 248th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns this week…and the world celebrates with Scotland. Burns Suppers are held all over the world…for just a few people or a few hundred people. We’ll get the details on hosting your own Burns Supper, as well as a look at the life and legacy of Robert Burns. In the news, there’s word of new distribution deals for William Grant & Sons and Blackadder, a new web site for the Scotch Whisky Association, and the latest issue of Whisky Magazine is in the mail.
