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.

If in this part of Scotland you must visit the famous grouse experience £10 for an hours tour with a taster at the end. The smells are amazing. The tour guide fully informative. The shop is delightful as is the coffee shop. Cleanest toilets in Scotland. A must come and do

I booked the blending experience as a special surprise birthday present for my whisky loving husband. He thoroughly enjoyed the experience and Jamie was very informative on the tour around the distillery. I booked the lowest level tour for myself as I was driving but the provision of the drivers dram to take away meant I could enjoy this later.... More

We went here to break up our day from Dundee. This is a nice tour plenty of info to learn. Great piece of history and fascinating facts that I did not know. We all take our tipple for granted but how many know what happens to get the drink poured into our glasses. It is tucked away easily found.

If you are interested in whisky this is a good tour with a tasting session at the end! There is a nice shop to buy whisky and gifts, good food and great tea room and cake. In the summer there is a lovely roof terrace to enjoy some sunshine and listen to the river

We were walking and had lunch in the distillery. There was a huge fireplace, lovely large and comfy seats. The soup and sandwiches on offer were really good. Gluten free options were available too. It was a relaxing place to spend a few hours. The shop was gorgeous. Staff friendly and welcoming.

What a great few hours. We did the distillery tour and I then had a tutored tasting. Each member of your party can customise the tour with a different tasting as you don't all have to do the same! Lesley our guide was fantastic and made this the best distillery tour we have been on. Drivers Dram kits given free... More
