An interesting afternoon, where we learnt about the distillation of whisky, with a delicious tasting session. Our guide, Michael, was full of information and great fun. Despite our group being rowdy, he kept a smile on his face and ours, and made the experience a lot of fun. The shops well stocked with a variety of whiskies and gifts. Well... More

The first thing you see when entering the car park is a huge grouse, that along with the quirky road signs gave us a laugh. We didn't do the tour as we didn't have much time and had already visited another distillery that morning but did visit the shop. There is plenty of choice and the guy behind the counter... More

I have been a fan of the Glen Turrent Highland single malt for two decades and the last time I cam up to Crieff the place was closed! Finally we got here and it was fab. If you have a favorite single malt it is important to pay homage to where it is made, have a look around and next... More

I visited Scotland’s oldest distillery and took 'The Famous Grouse Experience'. It was a fabulous tour which was both informative and interesting. I learned a great deal about the whiskey making process and the difference between blends and single malts. Peter was our guide and he was funny and knowledgeable. The tour finished with a wee nip of whiskey, which... More

Visited in July. Husband enjoys his Famous Grouse so was very interested to visit and see how whiskey is made. Guide explained every process in detail. Certainly knew his stuff. We had a choice of whiskey's to taste during the tour. Explained how you should taste. Overall well worth a visit. And worth the £10.00.

We popped in mainly because of the 2 for 1 offer in their tourist information leaflet and were pleasantly surprised. The tour was interesting, the tasting session was good ( and the children where offered iron bru) Would recommend

Good tour of the distilling process. Taste Glenturret or Famous Grouse whiskies. Spent the money on the extra tasting (we chose whisky and chocolate)...probably not worth it after the basic tour and taste.
