Burns Supper at The Athenaeum Hotel is set to be brimming with tradition and twists. On Saturday 25th January this Mayfair hotel’s monthly whisky social will pay homage to the great Scottish poet with a sumptuous four-course meal created by Martine Nouet.

Robert Burns may have seen Scotch whisky as holding a special symbolic significance for Scotland but that has not stopped France-born Martine Nouet from becoming one of the world’s most famous whisky tasters and commentators in the world. Martine will revisit the traditional Burns Night supper and pair each course with specially selected drams of Balvenie whisky, a mouth-watering single malt sourced in Speyside.

The evening begins at 6.30pm with canapés and cocktails, followed by a four course meal at 7pm – each course paired with a different dram of Balvenie. Adding her own special stamp to the proceedings, Martine will guide guests through the menu and share stories from her world of whisky. Also joining her is Balvenie ambassador Alwynne Gwilt, a.k.a. Miss Whisky, together with The Athenaeum’s very own whisky sommelier, Ivo Silva.

The Athenaeum hosts a whisky social every month, but if you can’t wait that long why not visit their famous Whisky Bar? With over 300 whiskies and counting, they get their hands on every new expression they can, so you can enjoy the widest possible choice. Try the whisky and cheese pairing experience from £15 per course.

Tickets for the Burns Supper are £75 per person and spaces are very limited. To reserve a place please call 0207 640 3311 or email The Athenaeum on whisky@athenaeumhotel.com.
