Top 10 Scottish spirits that aren’t Scotch

23rd January, 2017 by Amy Hopkins

It may be hard to believe, but not everyone is a Scotch whisky fan (it’s okay, we forgive you), so we set out to find some other interesting Scottish spirits to toast the Bard of Ayrshire this Burns Night.

This Wednesday (25 January), the world will celebrate the life and work of Rabbie Burns, widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland.

For many, this will involve raising a glass of Scotland’s national spirit, but others may be in want of something a little sweeter or lighter – and The Spirits Business is happy to oblige.

Scotland’s rich spirits industry also spans gin, vodka and liqueurs, and even brandy and rum, meaning Scotch sceptics needn’t have an empty glass this Burns Night.

Click through the following pages to see our pick of the top 10 Scottish spirits that aren’t Scotch whiskies.
