If you're a dram fan looking to celebrate Scotland on Burns Night in Manchester, this is the event for you. Kosmonaut will host a tasting session celebrating superior whiskies from around the world that have taken inspiration from the traditional Scottish drink, on the afternoon of Burns Night.

The 18th Century Scottish tradition of Burns Night, celebrated by Scots around the world, is a supper toasted with Scotch, haggis and poetry on the birthday of revered Scottish poet Robert Burns. In honour of the tradition, this year Kosmonaut is celebrating the influence of Scotch in countries around the world who now produce some incredibly impressive whiskeys. Among many, the tasting session will feature Japan’s Nikka Whisky; its roots lie in Scotland, as the dedicated producers visited the country 1918 with the sole aim of discovering its secrets to eventually build Japan’s first distillery. 

Also served will be canapés with flavours matched to each whiskey, complimenting the origins and components of each drink:

Sweden: Mackmyra Single Malt Whiskey

South Africa: Bain’s Cape Mountain Whiskey

With home-made Zebra Burgers
