Raise a Dram for The Glenturret
On November 5th 2015 reigning Miss Scotland, Mhairi Fergusson and former Red Hot Chilli Piper and General Manager of The Famous Grouse Experience, Stuart Cassells, led 152 people in a World Record Attempt to simultaneous “raise a dram” at Glenturret Distillery in Crieff.
Scotland’s only remaining producer of hand mashed whisky was celebrating 240 years of making whisky By Hand and By Heart. Evidence had to be submitted to Guinness World Records and await official confirmation.
November 5th also saw the launch of a new core range, which showcases Glenturret’s unrivalled agility in small batch whisky production which enables the distillers to create different taste expressions, offering consumers a clear choice between a Sherry, Triple Wood or Peated malt.
Producing whisky the traditional way since opening its doors as a single malt distillery in 1775, today The Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret Distillery is the most visited distillery in Scotland welcoming over tens of thousands of visitors annually.
Stuart Cassells, General Manager at The Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret Distillery said:
“Our ‘raise a dram’ world record attempt was the perfect way to mark 240 years of Glenturret Distillery, standing alongside members of the public and whisky lovers from the area. We’ve been raising a dram here on this site for 240 years which is incredible. It was great to see everyone come together to celebrate.”
