Offering a generous contemporanean cuisine geared towards the taste of tomorrow, but honouring the heritage from the past, the restaurant’s main objective is to provide an ecstasy of the senses to the most exigent palates. Under the guidance and expertise of chef René Mathieu, starred Michelin chef since 2012 and crowned Chef of the Year 2012 for Luxembourg by Gault & Millau, the restaurant La Distillerie is bound to provide its clients with an explosion of refined tastes with its original cuisine and innovative combinations. “My dishes are born out of an expression that is technical just as much as sentimental. Any magical encounter with nature or memorable moment in my life can inspire a new recipe that is both well-rounded and creative,” says Mathieu.
Located in the idyllic setting of the Château de Bourglinster in Luxembourg’s countryside, the visitors will be mesmerised by the medieval atmosphere of the castle. Dating back to the 11th century, it has its own chapel, two defensive towers and residential wings. Today, the château hosts exhibitions, concerts, meetings and receptions. Divided into three main spaces to host banquets and receptions, the castle provides an ideal setting to turn your event into a memorable experience. ‘Le Château’ can fit up to 600 guests standing for cocktail events. ‘La salle de Chevaliers’ provides space for up to 120 seated guests for dinner or 200 standing up. As for ‘La salle Renaissance’, it can host up to 60 guests for seated dinners or 80 standing up for cocktails.
For a more casual lunch on the domain amongst friends or family, the little sister of La Distillerie is the Brasserie Côté Cour, which offers a taste of local cuisine of the highest quality, equally designed by chef René Mathieu. Offering a large selection of wines and a beautiful view from the terrace, it is the perfect place to relax after a day of exploration in the Luxembourgian countryside. For a personalised service and memorable dining experiences, the team at the Château Bourglinster look forward to facilitating a one-of-a-kind culinary adventure for its visitors. www.bourglinster.lu
