Burns Night, which falls on 25 January, honours the birth of Robert Burns, Scotland’s greatest poet. Celebrations are at their most exuberant in Scotland, of course, but wherever Scots gather, from Glasgow to London to Tokyo, the birthday of the poet is marked with singing, dancing, haggis and, most importantly, whisky.

To help your evening along we’ve curated a perfect selection of Scotch whiskies, from single malts to blends, the Highlands and Speyside to the islands of Islay and Arran, and with price points to suit every pocket.
