The Glenturret Lalique Restaurant has been awarded a second Michelin star, one of only two places in Scotland to hold the prestigious award. Located within Glenturret distillery in Crieff, Perthshire, the eatery joins Restaurant Andrew Fairlie on two Michelin stars. This comes as Michelin announced the 2024 restaurant selection of The Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland. The Glenturret Lalique is headed by Scottish chef Mark Donald, who joined the restaurant in 2021 and received its first Michelin star just seven months later, making it the first restaurant inside a distillery to achieve Michelin recognition. Mark captures the essence of the distillery in his menus with nods to the distillation process cleverly woven into his cuisine.
According to Mark, “This is an ecstatic moment for us. We are all thrilled to have been awarded a second Michelin star and happy too that Scotland is getting the recognition it deserves as a gastronomic destination. We are located in Scotland’s Whisky Distillery, and we will all be enjoying a dram of Glenturret Whisky.” The 26-seated restaurant is open for dinner from Wednesday to Saturday, with prices starting from £195 to dine at the restaurant.
