Warehouse Experience at The Famous Grouse Experience

By 3rd June 2016

You know he loves a dram, and you know he’d be grateful for the gift of a bottle of whisky. But this Father’s Day, why not go a step further and give him the ultimate whisky experience?

The award-winning Famous Grouse Experience at the Glenturret Distillery in Crieff offers a range of tours that give a fascinating insight into how whisky is made – and how a distillery works.

This isn’t just any distillery, it’s the oldest working whisky distillery in Scotland – and the only one where you’ll see whisky ingredients still being hand mashed, just like they were hundreds of years ago.

The Warehouse Experience will take him on a tour of the distillery, including the mash tuns and traditional copper washes where the ingredients are mixed and then distilled. It includes a visit to the specially built sample room within the warehouses, where he’ll find out exactly what goes into ageing the whisky. There’s also a guided nosing and tasting session, just so he can impress his pals next time they’re having a dram.

Talking of which, your dad can bottle his own whisky in the distillery gift shop, where he’ll get to fill, seal and label his very own bottle straight from the cask.

Better still, throw in a bottle of The Glenturret Fly’s 16 Masters, the latest in a line of limited edition malts produced here. If he’s a dog lover, he’ll adore the ‘tail’ behind this whisky. The distillery recently unearthed a photo in the back of a cupboard. It dates back to 1905 and features 16 stillmen and a collie dog called Fly, believed to belong to the distillery manager. That provided the inspiration for this new bottling, the iconic image on its label and, of course, the name.
