Pairing Poetry, Music & Whisky

An Roghainn/The Choice‘ is a lyrical love poem by Raasay’s own Sorley MacLean, the most significant Gaelic poet of the 20th Century. The poem has been beautifully committed to music by Donald Shaw.

Pour yourself a dram, a gin, or a cocktail and enjoy Julie Fowlis’ wonderful rendition of An Roghainn.

We won’t attempt to dissect the meaning of this intricate and beautiful love poem of Sorley MacLean’s, and instead, encourage you to look it up and get lost in a world of poetry.

‘The Choice/An Roghainn’ for us tonight will be between an Isle of Raasay Gin or a dram!
