Glenturret Distillery

Whisky Types:Single Malts and Blended Whiskies

Typical Taste:Smooth with honey and vanilla with a long toffee and honey finish

 

Glenturret is the most visited Whisky Distillery in Scotland and its Single Malt is part of the Famous Grouse Blended Whisky. The Distillery is situated in Crieff nearby Perth and can be reached easily from Stirling, Glasgow and Edinburgh by car or with organised bus tours. Glenturret produces single malt whiskies that mature 8, 10, 12, 15 or 21 years in bourbon casks. The general tasting notes of the single malts are smooth with honey and vanilla with a long toffee and honey finish.

 

Established in 1775 Glenturret is one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. The original name of Glenturret is “Hosh” and it was owned by the Drummond Family. Afterwards it changed the owners a couple of times until it got closed due to the great depression in America. It was then reopened in 1957 by James Fairlie sold to Cointeau in 1981 and then passed to Highland Distillers in 1990. Since 1990 it has become home of the Famouse Grouse.

 

Glenturret Distillery has a shop with all the whiskies and souvenirs as well as a restaurant. Opening hours are usually from 9am to 6pm but check the website for more precise information as this can change depending on the season.
