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.

Distillery tour. Small scale. Educational about the process and history. Emphasising the company values of remaining simple without using modern technology. The tour lasts about an hour and depending on the £10 pp package it ends at the excellent shop. There are a number of upgrades at £20pp £30pp etc which involve upgraded tastings at the end of the tour.... More

After leaving Crieff Hydro in disgust after appalling service, my wife and I called for afternoon tea and cake at nearby Famous Grouse Experience. Night and day compared to Crieff Hydro customer service. Small cafe with usual hot drinks and small range of cakes and scones. We were treated not only to top class chocolate fudge cake, scone and teas,... More

We visited the Famous Grouse Experience during a short stay nearby. We didn't do the distillery tour but we were very impressed by the shop and café. It is very well run and we really enjoyed going there.

Interesting tour of a whisky distillery and look behind the scenes at the manufacturing process from raw grain to barreled product. At the end you get to taste two different whisky's and experience the difference in the taste brought out by differences in the process you just walked through with a guide. The two distillery cats are also quite fun.

We enjoyed the tour and was something to do on a dull day. At £10 pounds per head it wasn't cheap or necessarily value for money but to counter that the cafe was very reasonably priced. The soup was very tasty and plentiful, and I might add that the team of young staff were wonderful, very polite, welcoming and excellent... More
