Robbie Burns Scotch Tasting Night


Back for its third year, The Dundas Museum and Archives is proud to present ‘Till a’ the Scotch Gang Dry’ – a celebration of whiskey and Robbie Burns!

Join in celebrating Robert Burns, Scotland’s national bard and the most famous poet worldwide with a night of scotch, haggis, a piper, and Scottish folk music in the Education Centre. Poems from the Bard will be read between tastings to keep all in good spirits. Doors open at 7pm.


Only $50 each for Friends of the Museum. If you aren’t a Friend, the price is $60 (but we’d love you to become one!)

Seating is limited, so call the Museum today at 905.627.7412 or email Esther.


Since 2003 internationally renowned whisky writer Jim Murray has published his annual Whisky Bible, which includes his much discussed pronouncements on whiskies of the year.  The 2016 edition once again stirred controversy, and some Canadian pride, by awarding Whisky of the Year to a rye distilled in Gimli, Manitoba.  Our tasting this year includes the 2016 Whisky of the Year, and will explore some of Murray’s other unusual and traditional picks from past years, many of which have won numerous other awards.

1) Crown Royal Northern Harvest– 2016 Whisky of the Year

2) Redbreast 12 Years Old Irish Pot Still– 2013 Irish Whisky of the Year

3) Glenmorangie Original, 2008 Best Single Malt 10-12 Years

4) Ancnoc Rutter Highland Single Malt, 2010 Best Single Malt

5) Ardbeg Corryvreckan, 2015 Best Single Malt, no age expression
