The great Scottish poet Robert Burns (1759-1796) is often celebrated with a supper some time around his birthday on January 25th. These supper affairs range from very formal gatherings of esthetes and scholars to uproariously informal rave-ups of drunkards and louts. The Single Malt Society’s Robbie Burns Supper & Tasting at Amelia’s Garden will be a dignified affair of course; respectable in every way.
Every year at this time we gather for a Burns supper and adhere, more or less, to the time-honoured form which includes the eating of a traditional Scottish meal, the sampling of excellent Scotch whisky, and quite possibly the recitation of works by, about, and in the spirit of the Bard.

Prince Edward County is 1,000 square kilometres of food and wine, beaches, antiques, inns, culture, history and recreation of all sorts that has been thriving in southern Ontario for two hundred years.
This island community of about 25,000 has deep roots in modern Canadian history. United Empire Loyalists settled In Prince Edward County and Sir John A. Macdonald lived and practised law in “The County”. It has always been a comfortable place to live and work, with a pastoral and relaxed feel. Millponds and restored grist mills stand amid vineyards and market farms. Creative people have set up art studios, galleries, antique shops and live theatre. Native crafts are well represented. Main streets in the towns and villages are masterpieces of restored and maintained colonial architecture. Local libraries and museums record a colourful history of commerce, culture and chicanery. No wonder it’s a popular year-round tourist destination.
