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.

During a quick 2 night trip to Edinburgh for New Years Eve, we were recommended by a friend to visit the Glenturret Distillery. We booked the Finest Tasting experience which was 30GBP. On our way there from our hotel (about an hour away), we got lost due to google. Honestly the views and scenery were breathtaking so it wasn't all... More

Being a disabled traveller trips to places like this can be difficult - not so at FG. Although I couldn't go with the rest of the group, an assistant came out and took my husband and myself a different way. She explained the procedures very well and was so nice and funny too. We rejoined the rest and the original... More

We did a 45-minute tour and I would say it was just perfect for someone who would like to know more about whisky production and history but does not want all the details (unless asking). The guide was good, he knew how to involve the audience and was pretty good at reading us, i.e when to stop talking and move... More
