Haggis anyone? Burns Night Supper in Zurich with the BSCC

Burns Supper in Zurich on 25th January 7.30pm – 11pm

Burns Night in Zurich

To celebrate the 254th anniversary of the birth of Scotland’s national bard, Robert Burns, the British Swiss Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Burns Supper at the Zunfthaus zur Meisen in Zurich.  Burns Night is celebrated on 25th January all around the world and is a truly unique event.

It’s also a great opportunity to (a) try haggis if you’ve never eaten it before, (b) wear a kilt if you’ve got one and (c) get to sing “Auld Lang Syne” again! This event also has the added attraction of whisky tasting and a prize draw for plane tickets to Edinburgh!

You will have to be a little patient as the Whisky Ships don’t open until Thursday 29th November and what’s important to know is that they only stay for 4 days – so you need to be quick or you’ll miss them.  On Thursday and Friday they are open from 4pm till 11pm and on Saturday from 2pm till 11pm and on Sunday 2nd December, their final day, they will be open frrm 2pm – 7pm.  Entrance is CHF 18, a glass costs CHF 2 and you buy a bag of 20 “tasting jetons” for CHF 20.

With whisky from Scotland, Ireland, the USA, Canada, Japan and even Switzerland you’ll be sure to get to know whisky a little better and hopefully find a whisky you like!  Read here (in German) …. for more information.
