This spring Talisker distillery and five-star rated restaurant, The Three Chimneys, will come together for the first time to launch ‘The Three Chimneys at Talisker’, a new pop-up dining experience.

A concept from the award-winning restaurant’s head chef, Scott Davies and general manager, Krzysztof Dudkowski, ‘The Three Chimneys at Talisker’ is hosted at the distillery’s newly designed waterfront space on the shores of Loch Harport.

The experience invites guests to fully immerse themselves in the rugged coastal landscape of Skye, through locally sourced food and drink and a shared passion and respect for local produce and craftspeople.

Head chef Scott Davies has woven the characteristics and processes of whisky distilling and maturation into local ingredients for a unique tasting menu ‘The Journey’, inspired by Uisge Beatha (the Scottish Gaelic term for ‘Water of Life’), offered at the beautiful Loch side location.

Guests can also savour lighter, seasonally influenced fare that showcases the abundant richness of Skye's larder, at a seafood bar.

Of the new experience, Leigh Aitken, Talisker brand home manager said: “We’re thrilled to welcome one of Scotland’s most famous restaurants, The Three Chimneys, to Talisker’s Pop-Up space, giving our guests an unforgettable culinary experience and showcasing local ingredients.

"Working together with The Three Chimneys means we can excite our visitors with something new and ensure that Skye remains a cherished haven for enthusiasts of fine food and whisky.”

Scott Davies, head chef at The Three Chimneys added: “We're super excited about our new partnership with Talisker.

"I didn’t appreciate whisky until I visited the Isle of Skye many years ago, I was fortunate to have a private tour at the distillery and had the opportunity to sample the 35 Year Old expression.

"Since that day I fell in love with the complexity coming from humble beginnings and capturing history in a glass.

"This partnership has allowed me to take inspiration from the creative process and ingredients in whisky distilling and maturation that is mirrored in the dishes.

"Our ethos at The Three Chimneys at Talisker is the best of Skye, Land, and Sea and I feel the ethos of both the Three Chimneys and Talisker are routed in local produce and the communities that make the Isle of Skye.”
