With over 400 years of unique heritage between them, Mansfield Pollard and the Glenturret distillery in Crieff are both steeped in tradition and renowned for their exceptional quality. Not surprising then, that we were approached by Aggora on behalf of the distillery to contribute to the proposed £ multi-million redevelopment of the historic site.
Established in 1775, on the outskirts of Crieff in Perth and Kinross, Glenturret is one of the oldest working distilleries in Scotland with a history stretching back to the illicit distillers who sought to avoid paying taxes to England from 1717. Having recently been purchased by the Swiss owner of Lalique crystal it is currently undergoing a five-star transformation including redevelopment the restaurant, the building of new warehouses and the development “luxury facilities”.
Mansfield Pollard were commissioned to design, manufacture and install five bespoke commercial kitchen canopies to serve the brand-new visitor centre restaurant. With aspiration of achieving Michelin star status, the kitchen facilities are second to none and the state-of-the-art development continues apace ahead of the opening scheduled late in 2020.
The visitor centre currently welcomes tens of thousands of visitors each year and is the fourth biggest tourist attraction in Scotland, partly due to the world renowned “Famous Grouse Experience”
