Discover Shaun Rankin’s Game Season dish infused with The Donn

The Craft Irish Whiskey Co.

Set in the tranquil Yorkshire Dales, AA’s 2022/2023 Hotel of The Year Grantley Hall boasts luxury accommodations, stunning spa and wellness facilities, as well as a multitude of dining options, including Michelin-star Shaun Rankin at Grantley Hall.

Chef Patron Shaun Rankin creates culinary masterpieces with seasonal menus, including locally sourced and foraged ingredients, to maintain a zero-waste philosophy. With the guest at the heart of hospitality, Shaun Rankin at Grantley Hall features a kitchen table, allowing a special and intimate dining experience. 

Excited to work with our soon-to-be-released Single Malt The Donn, Shaun used his expert palette to create a dish to not only feature our award-winning whiskey, but a dish that balances the flavours of the Game Season and The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. together. 

Shaun described the notes of caramel, orange and a depth of spice from The Donn, and decided that the robust taste would perfectly accompany a duck dish, allowing both of the strong flavours to complement and mellow each other out. This pairing has been specially curated for a taste guests have never experienced before, highlighting the hard work that goes into matching wines and whiskeys with cuisine. 

From the greeting of picturesque grounds, to the spectacular Michelin-star menu, Shaun Rankin at Grantley Hall is filled with little pockets of heaven that embody luxury, including our ultra-rare Single Malt The Taoscán behind the bar. 

We are excited to announce that this dish will be available to try over the Game Season, so we invite you to click here and make a reservation at Shaun Rankin at Grantley Hall.
