Scotland has given the world many gifts. Fromand to the Deep Fried Mars Bar (yes, look it up), we owe a debt of gratitude to our Celtic brothers and sisters. However, we’ll happily allow them to take a back seat when it comes to fine dining. That is until now. Enter The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant – the world’s first distillery fine-dining concept.

you know the principle of the IT-BAG , don't you? Every season there is this one bag that can be seen everywhere and who all want to have. Often the enthusiasm lasts only briefly and you quickly looked at her, a trend bag lasts less often over several seasons and it becomes even less common in the true classic . © PR Schuh-Trend-2022 Ballerinas-Miu-MiU PR This principle can also be transferred to other fashion pieces.

The executive sommelier at The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant, Julien Beltzung, has curated an extensive international wine list to compliment Mark’s menus, comprising over 400 bins, with bottles starting from £39 (AU$67). Running alongside the restaurant is The Bar, which holds a collection of fine whiskies from both inside and outside Scotland’s oldest working distillery. A destination in its own right, The Bar’s 250 whiskies include rare bottlings such as The Glenturret 35-Year-Old 1977 and a Port Ellen 18-Year-Old 1979 Silent Stills Signatory.
Located in Crieff, Perthshire, The Glenturret was recently acquired by the Lalique Group and has seen an enormous rebrand of all the distillery’s core expressions. Their whiskies now come in Lalique-designed bottles, resulting in a growth in popularity worldwide. As you’d expect, the Lalique restaurant was another huge of the new strategy.
