How to Celebrate Burns Night in Style

“It’s easy to make friends with a suitcase full of whisky.” I think our guest today is just being more than modest. It takes a whole lot more than that to be the Head of Whisky at Atom Brands. Sam Simmons was introduced to whisky as a PHD student at the University of Edinburgh. One sip and he was smitten, not only by the taste, but the story and heritage of the brown spirit that runs through the veins of the Scots.  

On the cusp of Burns Night, the most famous whisky drinking celebration of the year, he’s here to teach us a thing of two about the new Atom Brands Character of Islay whisky, Aerolite Lyndsay.

If you feel a chill in the air, you might want to warm yourself up with the Aerolite Hot Toddy – an easy cocktail recipe you can make at home!
