Scottish Whisky Toasts - Now you might be think about having a dram or two over the Christmas and New Year holidays. Most of us will be happy with a simple ' Sláinte ' toast.
The basic Scottish Gaelic is slàinte (mhath), meaning "good health" , to which the normal response is do dheagh shlàinte "your good health". There are other variations such as:
- air do shlàinte "on your health!" with the response slàinte agad-sa "health at yourself!"
- slàinte mhòr "great health" which is also used as a Jacobite toast with the alternative meaning of "health to Marion", Marion (Mòr) being a Jacobite code name for Prince Charles Edward Stuart.
