    The tour our guide was nice, funny, if also the accent without ;) It was our second distillery. Here was allowed to shoot in retrospect the least photos, however, has remained much in memory. Most beautiful logo!

  • Great experience! Restaurant is very good and reasonably priced. The tour is informative and interesting. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Overall excellent adventure!
  • A fantastic surprise. Outstanding afternoon tea which is excellent value for money. Fabulous surroundings and a beautiful setting. Well worth a visit even if it's not for the whiskey!
  • The Famous Grouse experience is largely oversold, famous grouse isn't made or bottled here. This is a distillery tour about one whiskey which blends into the famous grouse somewhere else. The Glenturret distillery experience was rather informative and very interesting. Tour guide was very Scottish, funny and helpful. Two free samples to finish the tour off(take away option for drivers)
  • Great location, great gift shop with a variety of products to suit all budgets and tastes. very friendly and helpful staff, the sculpture outside of the distillery is a must see. I did not have time to take in a tour this visit but will definitely be going back another day to take the tour when i am back in the area. A great distillery that creates an iconic drink, a must see if you are in the area.
  • A very good opportunity to learn about making process and taste the Scottish whisky. Eat well before you go and have the drink neat, without ice or water.
