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.

A very well done tour set up - friendly knowledgeable guide with a good flow for the tour. The facility is clearly designed more for tours than production complete with large car park, restaurant, restrooms, and of course a big gift shop. the tasting at the end of the tour isn't standard famous grouse but some of the component whiskeys...

I have been to a few distilleries and brewerys across the world and this was by far the best visit and overall experience. I would strongly recommend that this tour is included on any visit to Scotland. Our guide was knowledgable, personable and made the experience better. The tasting was educational as well as delicious. if you have time, have... More

A visit to Scotland isn't complete without visiting a distillery like this. I didn't take the tour as I left my two sleeping children in the car with the wife and popped in to try and buy a bottle. Found a lovely little number that you can't buy in any shop. The lady who served me was very patient and... More

While you might not expect it, this visit turned out to be one of the highlights. This distillery is very old school with wooden vats and people actually checking out the mash and handling the whole operation. Most modern distilleries are pretty automated and you might not get the view that this one provides. It is very small. Of course... More

Found it by chance and glad we did. Went for the £10 tour and found it really interesting. Knocked the spots off previous tours of French brandy distilleries. Michael, our tour guide was brilliant, informative and humorous. Tipples at the end were well received. Bought a bottle as a memento. We would highly recommend this venue. Cafe was good too... More

Visitors should know that the Glenturret Distillery has very little connexion with the Famous Grouse blended whiskies, apart from Glenturret single malt being used in the blend; Famous Grouse is neither blended nor bottled at this distillery. It is purely a branding/marketing exercise to promote Edrington's Famous Grouse brand. I was fully aware of this when I booked, but was... More

Dear Harb0urmaster, Thank you for your review. Our distillery team are dedicated to celebrating both The Glenturret Single Malt and The Famous Grouse brands. Glenturret has three connections to The Famous Grouse that make us the ideal home for the brand. The first connection is that we produce two different styles of spirit here at the distillery that both contribute... More

The trip was booked through our hotel and we were fortunate to have Lisa as our Tour Guide. It was brilliant seeing at first hand the traditional whiskey making process and meeting some of the employees, who clearly love their jobs.
