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.

The restaurant has a new franshisee which we have yet to experience. The previous incumbant was the distillery who catered more for bus visitors

Highly recommended for whisky lovers and novices alike. As part of the standard tour (£10) you are walked through the various stages of the whisky making process - because it is a working distillery you are actually seeming it being made. The guide is very knowledgable and can explain where are the whisky flavours come from. The tour includes 2... More

Glenturret Distillery is the oldest working distillery in Scotland, and it is also now the 'brand home' to Famous Grouse. I care more about the single malt side than the branded side, so I was happy to see that most of the tour is about the distillery itself and its single malts, with only a bit at the end for... More
