Glenturret Distillery (The Famous Grouse Experience)
|[Yep, it's "that" Famous Grouse]|
Glenturret is Scotland's oldest distillery and its most visited, nestling beside the tumbling Turret Burn about a mile north of Crieff. Production quantities are relatively small and Glenturret single malt is little-known, so why is the distillery so popular? The answer: spirit originating here also goes into Famous Grouse blended whisky, and the visitor centre represents this world-famous brand. A huge, bronze-coloured statue of the grouse itself provides good photo opportunities - as does the world's largest whisky bottle that's found inside the tasting rooms. Try to avoid peak times if you want a more personal tour.
