Known far and wide for his contribution to the Scottish literary landscape – including the song Auld Lang Syne – Robert Burns chose the inspirational landscape of Dumfriesshire to make his family home in the later part of his young life.
He was the ‘Ploughman Poet’, and his wit and lyrical prose were the inspiration for Man O’Words, our fruity single malt expression. Lines of his prose adorn our richly decorated bottles.
And on 25th January, many a dram will be raised in his memory at Burns Suppers around the world.
The area local to Annandale Distillery is adorned with sites of special interest for fans of the Bard;
Ellisland Farm – the home he built for his family - is a short drive north of Dumfries, The Globe Inn in Dumfries (famously known worldwide as 'Burns' Howff), where he was a regular patron (his handwritten verse still adorns the windows), and indeed Annan, where he often visited and lodged in his capacity as exciseman, and where he wrote the song ‘The Deil’s awa wi the Exciseman’; a lighthearted jibe at his own profession.
It’s almost inconceivable that Burns wouldn’t have been aware of and presumably visited the site of Annandale Distillery, then an illicit distillery.
Annandale Distillery Co. Ltd took ownership of The Globe Inn on 30th November 2018, with the singular aim of preserving its rich history, Visitors can look forward to a warm Annandale welcome at both the Distillery, and Burns' favourite drinking 'howff'.
