El Celler De Can Roca, a three-Michelin-starred restaurant in Spain run by brothers Joan, Jordi and Josep Roca, has teamed up with Macallan to create TimeSpirit.

The experience will be the Spanish restaurant’s first venture of this kind outside of Spain and will offer a nine-course tasting menu.

The brand new dining room, located at The Macallan Estate, has space for 30 covers and has been designed by award-winning architect David Thulstrup.

The Macallan says that the space has been designed to create the “ultimate gastronomic dining experience and immersion in nature” for diners.

Each dish is curated with seasonal, local produce, either foraged from The Macallan Estate or sourced from local suppliers.

Rachel Walters, Director of Operations at The Macallan, said: “The opening of TimeSpirit is an incredible accomplishment for The Macallan and will offer diners something completely unique in a setting like no other.

“We have the finest Scottish larder on our doorstep, with a kitchen garden and a hyper-local sourcing programme, which will offer fresh, local ingredients alongside the welcoming Speyside hospitality for every guest who walks through the door.”

El Celler De Can Roca is known for serving traditional Catalan cuisine with twists which the Michelin Guide describes as “creative”.

But the brothers behind the restaurant say they will “pay homage” to Scottish cuisine with their latest venture.

They said: “The many trips we have made to Scotland and the inspiration we have found in its old cookery books have afforded us the chance to pay homage to Scottish cuisine.

“We have been all over the country, drinking in its spirit, devoting time to it and we would now like to share our cooking through The Macallan.

“We celebrate our longstanding partnership as part of The Macallan’s 200th anniversary and distil its exciting history from the kitchen.”

TimeSpirit will open to diners in late summer.
