Drinking whisky is an important part of celebrating Burns Night which commemorates the life of the bard, Robert Burns.

Giving a toast to the man who is often considered the national poet of Scotland requires some fine whisky and there are a number of great options for it.

If you want to stock up come January 25 then we've broken down a few of the bottles you could go for.

Aside from that people gather at dinners, parties and events and enjoy a traditional meal of haggis, neeps and tatties to celebrate his life and work.
