A complete Lalique experience is offered with this crystal collection as guests interact with lavish crystal objets d’art at every turn
Legendary French crystal house Lalique has partnered with luxury hotel Montage Beverly Hills to present an exclusive and permanent installment of the world’s finest crystal in £10, Montage Beverly Hills’ lounge specializing in the world’s most precious whisky, The Macallan Single Malt.

The intimate hideaway, tucked above Scarpetta restaurant, encompasses a full-sensory Lalique experience from the luminous Chene chandeliers and sconces, Seville console, the Masque de Femme and Mossi votives, the Art Deco Royat vases, Compiegne vases, Ganymede champagne coolers to a complete array of the Owl barware and decanters. Through it all, Lalique’s unique perspective on all types of design elements stands in a class by itself for beauty and quality craftsmanship.

Lalique has a strong history of interior design from its founder, René Lalique who was famously commissioned to decorate the Orient Express train, the Normandie cruise liner and the windows of Henri Bendels on New York’s Fifth Avenue. Lalique continues in the tradition of René with the next generation of luxury projects at Montage Beverly Hills.

“Lalique’s exquisite crystal enhancements are an exceptional complement to the beautiful wood paneling, warm club style décor and refined setting that £10 offers,” said Hermann Elger, General Manager of Montage Beverly Hills. “No detail was spared in the creation of this lounge, from the specially curated water imported from Scotland to this unique Lalique installment.”

“Lalique has established a close working relationship with The Macallan over the past six years through our collaboration of limited edition crystal decanters housing some of the world’s rarest whisky. We share a heritage based on a commitment to craftsmanship and creativity underpinned by a genuine passion to strive for the best in all our endeavors. Our new partnership with Montage Beverly Hills and £10 underscores this drive for excellence,” said Maz Zouhairi, President of Lalique North America.

In addition to an extensive collection of The Macallan, the £10 menu proudly features selections from the house of Krug, wines meticulously selected by the hotel’s Master Sommelier and a handpicked assortment of other spirits that represent the finest of their kind.

£10, which derives its name from the Scottish ten pound note featuring a rendering of The Macallan distillery’s beautiful copper stills, is the only place in the world where one can enjoy a glass of The Macallan 64 Years Old whisky, priced at $64,000 per dram. £10 is open Tuesday - Saturday, and offers two distinct seating times from which guests may choose: 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. In addition, £10 is available for very select private events and private scotch tastings. Reservations are required.
