It’s safe to say that we here at Addicted have made it a tradition of celebrating Robbie Burns Day, and is it really any surprise as to why? With a deep love of whisky and parties, Robbie Burns Day is really the perfect opportunity to raise a glass to great friends, great drink, and now, some great food.
A fun new way to ring in Robbie Burns’ day is coming to Toronto. In celebration of the famed Scotsman’s birthday, Dewar’s Whisky is inviting scotch lovers to experience the Scotch Egg Club: a pop-up speakeasy highlighting a unique (and delicious) marriage – scotch eggs and Dewar’s Whisky.
First launched in Brooklyn last fall, Tommy’s Egg Kitchen will make its Canadian debut and open to the public January 25th for one night only to host a scotch egg competition hosted by acclaimed Scottish chef James Forrest. The culinary competition will feature six renowned chefs from across Canada who will compete for the title of best scotch egg. Guests will have the chance to eat and judge, tasting each of the finalists’ scotch eggs to determine the ultimate winner. Each scotch egg will be paired with a Dewar’s cocktail for the ultimate combination of Scottish fare.
For those of you that don’t know, Dewar’s is a brand of blended Scotch whisky which is the world’s most awarded with more than 500 medals earned in international competitions.
The Dewer’s 12 year, the selection that we’ll be enjoying to toast Robbie Burns day is a personal favourite here at Addicted due to it’s subtle fruit and floral notes with a palate that is light-bodied and balanced with flavours of vanilla, caramel, and raisin following up with a fruity and spicy, medium length finish.
It’s really something special and we are finding out along the way, not just by itself.
The Dewar’s Scotch Egg Club will take place in cities across North America and over the course of the event guests can expect a fun and lively evening featuring scotch eggs, inspired cocktails, live music and yes, chicken games.
