Opening Of The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant
The Glenturret, Scotland’s Oldest Working Distillery, is delighted to announce the addition of a spectacular new fine dining experience to its distillery: The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant, opening on 28 July 2021.
Located at the heart of The Glenturret distillery, nestled at the foot of the rolling hills of Crieff and alongside the River Turret, guests will enjoy world-class gastronomy and hospitality in the idyllic Perthshire countryside.
The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant is headed up by Head Chef Mark Donald, who joins from Michelin-starred Number One at The Balmoral in Edinburgh. The 30-cover restaurant promises to deliver a unique gastronomic experience: Glasgow-born Mark built his impeccable culinary credentials through holding positions at some of the World’s best restaurants including the iconic Noma in Copenhagen, Restaurant Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles (two-star Michelin), Hibiscus (two-star Michelin) and Bentley, Sydney. His homecoming in 2018 saw him take the reins and retain the Michelin star for Number One at The Balmoral.
Available for dinner five nights a week, the seasonal and contemporary multi-course tasting menu offered at The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant has been created by Mark and his team to highlight the exceptional Scottish produce sourced and foraged in the local terroir. Diners will be taken on a culinary journey guided by a sense of place and introduced to unique and playful flavour combinations reflective of Mark’s global experience. The elegant design and decoration were inspired by place and history: centuries old brick work is left exposed and the blues and reds from The Glenturret and Murray clan tartans combine with soft golden barley tones to create an ambience of crafted elegance. Two Lalique Champs Elysées chandeliers decorate the restaurant, as well as barley motifs crafted from Lalique crystal adorning polished oak doors and the beautiful tartan furniture; guests will eat and drink from bespoke Lalique glass and tableware. Alongside an extensive fine wine list, a spectacular Whisky Bar will offer more than 250 spectacular whiskies to try by the dram or as part of a flight. All will be delivered with a seamless service and warmth that The Glenturret are renowned for.
For those visiting in the day, indulgent afternoon tea will be served seven days a week. A thoughtful elevation of the traditional afternoon tea, the selection of seasonal savouries created with the finest Scottish ingredients will be offered alongside sweet delicacies, such as an exceptional Maracaibo 65% & Malted Barley Gateaux, made with the same grains used for making The Glenturret and served tableside from the trolley. All pastries are created by pastry chef Kayleigh Turner, who recently won Pastry Chef of the Year at the Scottish Food & Drink Awards; Kayleigh also worked together with Head Chef Mark Donald at Number One at The Balmoral.
Speaking of the new addition to the distillery, Managing Director at The Glenturret, John Laurie said, “We are very happy to finally welcome guests again here at the distillery, and cannot wait to welcome guests at the restaurant. The Glenturret has long been home to some of the finest whiskies in the world, and it seems fitting that, with Mark Donald’s help we will now be able to provide visitors with an elevated dining experience that reflects the skill, heritage and Scottish heart that goes into producing such exceptional liquids.”
The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant will open its doors on 28th July 2021; reservations are now open on www.theglenturretrestaurant.com
