Gelturret distillery opened in this area of Crieff back in 1775 and close to it is a small distillery that started to make The Famous Grouse was founded in 1800. It was in 1957 when both distilleries joined. In 1990 a group of Highlands distillers bought the complex that is now fully operational.
The tour was perfect and very interactive. We followed the flight of the partridge in the river and all those areas where elements that are used or included in the making of this "water of life " (which is what the word whiskey means) are found.
Entry has slightly gone up in price but you receive two tastings. This distillery receives many visitors and is world famous....cheers!
