To warm up the chilly winter nights, Brown’s Hotel in London has set up a pop-up bar for whisky lovers in The Library. Launched in time to celebrate Burns Night, the annual January party honoring Scottish poet Robert Burns, the bar is open from 6 p.m.- 1 a.m. until February 8. Brown’s imported the concept from sister hotel, Edinburgh's The Balmoral, home to the whisky bar, Scotch.

At Scotch Pop-Up Bar, you can sample a collection of 40 different whiskies from Scotland’s famed whisky-producing regions including Speyside, Islay, Campbeltown, the Islands, the Highlands and the Lowlands. Some of the vintages date back to the 1940s. If you need tasting tips, Fraser Robson- a Whisky Ambassador from the original Scotch in Edinburgh- is at the helm.

Snacks like wild boar salami, smoked almonds and dark Swiss chocolate are designed to pair with the whiskies. Glenmorangie is a partner of the pop-up bar, and you’ll even find the exclusive Glenmorangie Pride 1978 (which costs £400 for a dram).
