Originally owned by Sir Patrick Murray of Ochtertyre, The Glenturret Distillery is mentioned in the purchase records of the Barony of Ochtertyre as far back as 1763. Today, the distillery still nestles in its original location on the edge of the historic town of Crieff. Known locally as ‘The Hosh(Gaelic for ‘the foot’) – it is a picturesque and secluded setting at the foot of green rolling hills in the lower glen overlooking the river Turret.


Our dedication to traditional handcrafted Whisky Making, slow batch production, and an unusually slow distillation in hand-beaten copper stills combine to influence and underpin the unique character of our new make spirit. It is a spirit that we can nurture and enrich over time; that will work with the wood, not against it; a spirit shaped by hand and heart.


We are passionate about the rich traditions of whisky distilling woven into The Glenturret since 1763 and seek to protect and enhance these for future generations.

We love the intricacies of handcrafted Whisky Making; the attention to detail that it demands. From hand milling and cutting by eye to understanding how the new make spirit matures in each and every cask, we take delight in every step of the Whisky Making journey.
