Dewar's readies Robbie Burns event
Alcohol producer John Dewar & Sons is preparing a Robbie Burns Day promotion in Toronto in support of its Dewar's Blended Scotch Whisky brand. Called the "Dewar's Scotch Egg Club," the promotion will take the form of a temporary location in the city that will operate for one night on Jan. 25 to commemorate the birthday of the Scottish poet. Participants in the ticketed event will receive whisky cocktails along with combinations of Scottish and Canadian snack foods. The event will also include live music and a comedy act. This will be the second year the company has conducted this promotion.
"My whisky friends, you're in for a special Burns' Night like never before as the Dewar's Scotch Egg Club returns as a Snack and Dram bar in celebration of Rabbie Burns," said comedian, cook and event host George Egg. "Dewar's is flipping the traditional merriment on its head for the modern scotch lover, combining the world's most awarded blended scotch with a delicious mash-up of Scottish-Canadian snacks, and I'm thrilled to be a part of it."
