Raise a glass to Rabbie in style, with these locally produced drinks delivered to your door in 1 hour!
Kick off your night with…
Prosecco with a dash of Edinburgh Gin's Pomegranate & Rose Liqueur: give your 'fizz on arrival' a hint of rose, with this gorgeous liqueur reminiscent of a Turkish Delight.
West St. Mungo: named after Glasgow's patron saint, St. Mungo is a delicious, light lager perfect for easing into the evening.
Edinburgh Beer Factory Paolozzi: paying homage to the inventor of pop art who was born just down the road in Leith, Paolozzi lager is a 21st Century Edinburgh take on a historic Munich style.
Compliment your haggis with:
Brewdog Punk IPA: this gem from Brewdog is one of our most popular products, and with a moreish tropical taste with bursts of grapefruit and pineapple, it's clear to see why. We've got both cans or bottles on Drinkly.
Tempest Long White Cloud: moving down to the Scottish borders, this citrusy extra pale ale is made with the very best New Zealand hops and local Scottish malted barley.
Thistly Cross Whisky Cask: what's better than a chilled bottle of East Lothian cider? East Lothian cider that's been matured in whisky casks from Glen Moray Distillery - superb!
Toast the Bard with:
Dalmore 12 Yo: aged in American white oak ex-bourbon casks, this single malt from the highlands is very rich with toasty, coffee notes.
Oban 14 Yo: this whisky, incidentally from my place of birth, is full bodied and heavy on the smoke... it's a great addition to cranachan!
Timorous Beastie - Wee, sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie... well, it would be rude not to round off the evening with a dram of this!
