Old Pulteney, The Maritime Malt, has created a chippy-turned-Burns Supper, in partnership with well-renowned London fish and chip shop, Sutton and Sons, to celebrate the life of Scots poet Robert Burns.
London locals are in for a treat, as Sutton and Sons will be offering fish and chips with a Scottish twist to pay homage to the legendary Bard. Those celebrating Burns Night can head to Sutton and Sons to enjoy a traditional fish and chips, with the addition of battered haggis bon bons and a dram of Old Pulteney 12 Years Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, available for sit-in and takeaway at its Stoke Newington restaurant, from Wednesday 25th until stock lasts.
Burns Night has been celebrated annually on January 25th since 1801 to commemorate the life of the famous Scottish poet, Robert Burns. Scots traditionally come together to enjoy a Burns supper of haggis, neeps, tatties and a dram of Scotch whisky. This year, Old Pulteney is bringing the Burns celebrations to London.
Malcolm Waring, Distillery Manager at Pulteney Distillery says: “Burns Night is a real highlight in our calendars up in Scotland, and we wanted to bring that sense of celebration south of the border.
“We’re really pleased to be honouring Robert Burns with Sutton and Sons this year. Whether in Caithness or London, a dram of Old Pulteney is wonderful alongside fresh fish, and we’re excited for Sutton and Sons customers to raise a dram with us this Wednesday, with a new and fresh take on a Burns Supper. Sláinte!”
Old Pulteney Single Malt Scotch Whisky is hand-crafted and distilled at Pulteney Distillery in Wick, one of the most northerly shores of Scotland.
Each expression in Old Pulteney’s range of single malt scotch whiskies captures the essence of its home on the Caithness Coast in the Scottish Highlands. Matured by the sea, Old Pulteney casks breath in the sea air year after year, leaving a distinctively briny taste that pairs perfectly with seafood dishes.
Sutton and Sons has been known for sourcing only the finest and freshest fish for almost twenty years. The local family-run restaurants offer traditional fish and chips alongside a changing menu of delicious grilled and seafood options – all served with a big, warm welcome. Voted best Multiple Operator by National Fish & Chips Awards in 2020, and recognised by publications including Condé Nast Traveller and Evening Standard as serving one of the best fish suppers in London, this Special Old Pulteney Burns supper is not one for London locals to miss this week.
