The Glenturret in Scotland become the first distillery in the world to receive a Michelin star


It’s beginning to look like 2022 is Glenturret’s year! The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant becomes the world’s first distillery to win a Michelin star within seven months of opening its doors in July 2021. The first-of-its-kind Glenturret Lalique Restaurant in Crieff, Perthshire, is an in-distillery fine dining concept launched by French crystal house Lalique. Scottish-born Head Chef Mark Donald worked closely with Managing Director of The Glenturret, John Laurie, to create a menu that would please the gods. The food menu incorporates the best of Scottish produce with the coveted flavors from his global experience.


Tattie scone, winter truffle, Baerii platinum caviar; Langoustine, buttermilk, Daurenki Tsar Impérial; Scallop kedgeree are some of the delicacies on the spectacular tasting menu. An extensive wine list (winner of Best of Award of Excellence at the Wine Spectator Award 2021) is assembled from five continents. Executive Sommelier at The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant, Julien Beltzung, has curated this extensive international wine list to complement Mark’s menus, comprising over 400 bins. Glenturret and Lalique have also launched Uaine, impressive single malt held in a jade hand-blown crystal decanter.


French crystal house, Lalique, has mastered the art of fine crystal craftsmanship and supporting fine dining establishments. Speaking about the Michelin achievement, Chef Mark Donald said, “I am so proud that Michelin has acknowledged the hard work, creativity, and dedication from my team – and everyone at The Glenturret. Our Scottish heritage and surroundings are vital to the heart and soul of the restaurant.”


Two Michelin-starred Villa René Lalique in Alsace, and one Michelin-starred Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey in the region of Bordeaux are part of Lalique’s illustrious portfolio.
