The Glenturret Lalique is a restaurant like no other. Housed within The Glenturret whiskey distillery, which has been in operation since 1763, it’s billed as the first in-distillery fine dining concept; an intriguing proposition, and one that the restaurant effortlessly delivers on.

Much of that is down to chef Mark Donald, who has led the Crieff restaurant since its launch in the summer of 2021. Donald previously held a star at Number One at The Balmoral in Edinburgh, and was awarded one at The Glenturret Lalique within seven months of opening.

Using the finest, hyper-local produce available, Donald’s tasting menu takes you on a journey through the Scottish landscape. The cooking is often playful in concept but always graceful and elegant. 

The wine list is curated by sommelier Julian Beltzung and is wide-ranging including everything from English sparking to low-contact wines from boutique wineries. By contrast, and as part of the Lalique family, the cellar holds a variety of rare mature vintages from the private wine selection and estates of Lalique Chairman Silvio Denz, whose enviable wine collection is accessed exclusively at The Glenturret Restaurant. 

The restaurant was launched by French crystal house Lalique, which has a history of supporting top-end fine dining establishments. Its restaurant portfolio also includes the two Michelin-starred Villa René Lalique in Alsace; and one Michelin-starred Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey in the region of Bordeaux. The Glenturret Lalique may be a younger restaurant, but in a short amount of time it’s carved out an equally as impressive legacy for itself.
