Gamba toasts Robert Burns with whisky-themed supper


A Glasgow seafood restaurant has teamed up with Highland Park whisky to host an Orcadian Burns supper.

Gamba will be offering guests a Scottish-inspired menu on January 26 to celebrate the life and work of the famous poet; the event is also a continuation of the venue’s 21st anniversary celebrations.

The menu, which will feature dishes of peated smoked salmon, Shetland-caught hake with Isle of Mull scallops and haggis, neeps and tatties, will be paired with Highland Park single malt expressions including the 12-year-old Viking Soul and the 18-year-old Viking Pride.

Single malt whisky ambassador, Adam Devine, will host the supper.

Derek Marshall, chef-patron at Gamba, said: “Considered one of the greatest whiskies in the world, it’s a pleasure to partner Highland Park to continue our 21st-anniversary celebrations and of course toast Rabbie Burns.

“It’s the perfect time of year for a whisky dinner and we can’t wait to host this exciting whisky and seafood event – our first of 2020.”
