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.

I have fond memories of visiting the Glenturret Distillery just outside Crieff in the 1980s and 1990s. Imagine my horror to turn up in 2015 to discover that the purported oldest distillery in Scotland has now become part of The Famous Grouse machine. Gone is the Glenturret sign, replaced by (you guessed it) a Famous Grouse sign. And there is... More

The Famous Grouse Experience is the popular commercial side of this, the oldest Distillery in Scotland, but the history lies within the Glenturret side of the tour. Fortunately both sides are approached sympathetically and provide a great Whisky experience for both newcomers to Single Malt Whisky & also to blended Whisky. On my visit the tour guide was very knowledgeable... More

We had a guided tour through this small distillery where they still do some methods by hand. The tour lasts one hour and then you can enjoy your tipple.

Billed as the oldest distillery in Scotland, this is also one of the smallest distilleries around, and a popular tourist attraction, due to its headline position for the Famous Grouse blend. The tour, which I last taken in 2009, was quite informative and spiced up by an interactive video presentation at the end. Both the famous blend and the Glenturret... More
