“The Famous Grouse” has climbed on board the Gung Haggis Fat Choy Express.
January 25th, 2009 – Sunday
This means that we really can use the specially created winning Toast to Robbie Burns.
By Mary MacIntyre:
Tae Rabbie Burns Scotland's Son
Wha' words a million hearts hae won
We fill oor glass o' golden grain
The Famous Grouse we proudly drain
So here's a toast in celebration
Tae Rabbie, tae whisky, tae Scotland Our Nation
It all started with the Gung Haggis Fat Choy Dinner joining Homecoming Scotland's World Famous Burns Supper network. We became one of 250 Burns dinners in the world to receive the Special limited edition of 37 year old blended “The Famouse Grouse” whisky – made exclusively for the 250th Anniversary of Robbie Burns.
The Chief Executive Phillip Riddell, of Visit Scotland Tourism agency came to Vancouver BC, on Tuesday January 20th, to meet with Todd Wong and present the exclusive bottle. At the dinner meeting, Todd also presented Phillip Riddell with some of the sample dishes that will be served at the “world famous” Gung Haggis Fat Choy dinner. Deep-fried haggis & shrimp won ton, and haggis pork sumpling sim sum, were served.
And now…. There will be tastings of “The Famous Grouse” blended whisky + single malt scotches “The Macallan” and “Highland Park”
These will start at 5:00pm Reception time.
“The Famous Grouse” is the official sponsor of Homecoming Scotland.
They even created a special limited edition (250 bottles) to celebrate the 250th birthday of Robbie Burns.
And we have a bottle – the only bottle in BC.
We will auction it off for charity. It is valued upwards of $720 to $800 CDN.
OR we just might open it and sell tastings for once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
You can be part of the World Wide Toast to Robert Burns' 250th Birthday!
If you don't have your ticket to Gung Haggis Fat Choy, it's okay to be embarrassed. This can be corrected.
Call Todd Wong – and book a seat for “Gung Haggis Fat Choy” latecomers' table
No guarantees – as we are now expecting a sell-out.
And well we should!
