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.

Set in lovely countryside(albeit quite hard to find!) we found this tour to be quite expensive so settled for a lunch in the cafe (again, this was very expensive!) and a mooch around the shop and grounds. Lovely gift shop and the staff are friendly. Fine for a one off trip.

We went on a family get together, we had a fantastic time. We are not all whiskey drinkers, but that doesn't matter, we still had a brilliant time. Some of us did £10 tour and a couple did £40 tour which meant they got to try extra whiskeys. Charlie the tour guide was fantastic really informative and made it fun.... More

After doing the Tour of the distillery and sampling the Famous Grouse, it was getting on a bit, so the counters were looking a little depleted, but the very friendly staff were only too happy to make fresh sandwiches for us. The rest of the menu looked good too.

We had an absolutely wonderful dinner here, which was very good value for money. The mains were exquisite, and the desserts couldn't be faulted either! Service was very attentive too without being intrusive. We will most definitely be back!

I really enjoyed this tour, even more than I have anticipated. The Famouse Grouse distillery has just created an atmosphere that goes well with its 'Famous' title. It has a feel of sophistication and years and years of experience. This is a small distillery not a big one and everything is hand-made. The whole experience of whiskey making is really... More

The Glenturret is Scotland’s oldest working distillery and one of the smallest you can visit so is worth visiting and is only minutes away from the centre of Crieff.
