Burns Night: Whisky 101 at The Gallery 

Celebrating Burns Night without whisky is nothing short of sacrilege. Where better then to honour Scotland’s greatest poet than at The Gallery in West Hampstead, which has become renowned for its dual fascinations – whisky and beer. Here’s a Short Epigram on Parting with a Kind Host in the Highlands penned by Burns himself:

When death’s dark stream I ferry o’er
A time that surely shall come,
In Heav’n itself I’ll ask no more,
Than just a Highland welcome.

With over 101 whiskies behind the bar – including many impressive and lesser-known Scotch – and a strong beer list, it is the go-to West London bar for a boilermaker. This Burns Night, The Gallery has created a drinks menu for the evening, which celebrates a selection of their favourite whiskies and Scottish beers.

The menu will include a classic Bobby Burns, showcasing Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve (£8.50) and beer and whisky pairings including  Chivas 12 with 6° North Four Saisons (£6.50). Entry is free to this buzzy neighbourhood bar.
