Description: Experience Scotland's Oldest Working Distillery Recently named Whisky...
Experience Scotland's Oldest Working Distillery Recently named Whisky Visitor Attraction of the Year, Scotland's oldest working distillery offers a truly unique and authentic experience to visitors. Set in the heart of Perthshire, the distillery is only an hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh.  Making whisky by hand and by heart since 1775, visitors will experience the traditional handmade distilling processes that have been used to craft the whiskies at Glenturret Distillery for generations. Discover how the distillery's Glenturret single malt is carefully blended with other grain and malt whiskies to create the UK's No.1 whisky, The Famous Grouse.  Choose from a range of tour experiences. Sample a selection of fine whiskies in our Tasting Experience, enjoy exclusive entry to our bonded warehouses in the Warehouse Experience and blend your own whisky during an in-depth Blending Experience.  Taste our best in the newly launched Wilde Thyme at Glenturret cafe and restaurant where you will savour mouth-watering dishes created using local, seasonal ingredients including Strathearn Pie, a special dish created in honour of the recent Royal Visit of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.  And be sure to visit our unique and welcoming shop. We stock a full range of superb single malts and blended whiskies including distillery exclusives such as the Bottle Your Own Glenturret single malt which you can bottle straight from the cask. Whether you are looking for a unique distillery tour, a very special warehouse experience, or even the opportunity to blend your own whisky, Glenturret is the only distillery in Scotland able to offer a truly authentic, traditional whisky making experience.

We visited here with our two children, the tour was really good, very enjoyable for us all. The distillery have just got two kittens and unfortunately for our tour guide took over the show for a little while! However when back on track we all enjoyed the tasting experience (the children had their first taste of iron brew-great idea). Really... More

I have been to the Café here a few times and it is a nice place for morning coffee. Very stylishly furnished. Comfy squashy sofas and friendly staff. Good coffee too.

We made a tour in the morning with only 4 other people, which was nice. Jamie was a great guide, knowledgeable and really kind, as the other members of the staff. We've learned a lot about the whole process to produce the famous scotch whisky. We've chosen the 10£/1h tour with a tasting of 2 different malts. We're not whisky... More

Last week the County Line bbq in Austin, this Sunday the restaurant at the Glenturret distillery in Crieff. Key difference the temperature, from 90+ to 50ish! Unfortunately the similarity was the slow service. At least this time we received an apology and a reason. Onto the food. Good wholesome Scottish fare. The best ever shoulder of Perthshire lamb, tart with... More

A lovely day out after two full days of being on our feet in Edinburgh. A very well informed guide called Brian kept us entertained en route to the distillery with his knowledge of Scottish history and politics. The whiskey experience was just long enough.

We started our visit with a light lunch followed by a delicious cake and then off to the tour. The staff were friendly and helpful and the tour did involve climbing stairs but our guide took time to make sure we all heard his narrative and he answered all our questions.
