Gute Nachrichten aus der Speyside und einem der beliebtesten Hotels dort: Das Craigellachie Hotel wird am 17. Mai 2021 wieder seine Pforten öffnen, und das mit einem neuen Außenbereich für das Restaurant, das auch mit einem neuen Top-Küchenchef aufwarten kann: Künftig ist William Halsall, ehemals Le Caprice, 34 Grosvenor Square, für das Angebot verantwortlich.
Bleibt nur zu hoffen, dass sich die Reisemöglichkeiten auch bald wieder ergeben werden. Hier die Pressemitteilung, die wir vom Hotel erhalten haben:
WORLD LEADING WHISKY HOTEL REOPENS DOORS WITH ONE OF UK’S TOP CHEF’S AND NEW OUTDOOR DINING EXPERIENCE
Known to many as one of the best whisky hotels in the world, The Craigellachie Hotel in Speyside will re-open the doors of its famous Copper Dog Pub and new outdoor terrace area to enjoy the very best of Speyside’s renowned food and drink larder and great outdoors.
Featuring a brand new menu curated by newly appointed Executive Chef and General Manager William Halsall who has led the food and drink offer at some of London’s favourite restaurants such as Le Caprice, 34 Grosvenor Square, and The Ivy, guests can expect an elevated food and drink showcasing local suppliers from across the region.
Renowned for creating a home from home experience, the team has been working hard renovating the hotel’s interior and exterior to improve overall guest experiences and to keep the local community safe. As part of this, locals, visitors, and passers-by are invited to enjoy some highlights from the Copper Dog Pub menu for takeaway or to eat out on the hotel grounds overlooking the Spey river.
The welcome upgrade of the outdoor dining experience offers seating for an additional thirty guests. Inside the Copper Dog, where guests from around the world rub shoulders with the locals, will be hand sanitising stations at every entrance and carefully monitored social distancing in place.
Newly appointed General Manager and Executive Chef Will Halsall said:
“Our team can’t wait to reopen the doors and welcome locals and visitors alike back to The Craigellachie. We are also pleased to be o ering a brand new food and drink menu from Copper Dog’s bar and kitchen featuring the very best of Speyside’s larder which can now be enjoyed on our new terrace overlooking the banks of the River Spey.
A big reason behind Speyside becoming the world’s largest whisky producing region is its micro climate and being one of the driest places in Scotland, this means we have some of the best food produce too, working with local suppliers from Sutherlands of Portsoy seafood, to locally grown vegetables from Speyfruit and beef from Aberlour’s S.A Mackie Butchers.
Our team has gone through vigorous training in preparation for reopening without compromising our friendly, home from home experience and we look forward to welcoming everyone back.”
