  • Glenturret - Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    The Glenturret Distillery, located in the picturesque region of Perthshire, Scotland, is one of the oldest operating whisky distilleries in Scotland, known for its high-quality single malt Scotch whiskies. The distillery is situated near Crieff and was founded in 1775. Today, Glenturret is part of the Lalique Group, renowned for its luxury products and crystal glass.

    Glenturret was founded in 1775 and has a long and eventful history. Originally known as Hosh Distillery, it later became known as Glenturret. The distillery has seen many changes of ownership over the years and has continuously evolved. Despite economic challenges and interruptions in production, Glenturret has consistently recovered and maintained its tradition and quality.

    A notable feature of Glenturret is its commitment to traditional distillation methods. The distillery uses traditional copper stills, known for their impact on the taste and aroma of the whisky. Glenturret relies on slow distillation to produce an exceptionally pure and complex spirit. The water used for distillation comes from the nearby Turret Burn and is valued for its purity.

    The maturation of Glenturret whisky takes place in carefully selected oak casks, including both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. These casks impart rich, fruity aromas and complex flavor notes to the whisky. The distillery's warehouses provide ideal conditions for the slow maturation of the whisky, leading to exceptional flavor development.

    The Glenturret range includes a wide array of single malt whiskies known for their versatility and quality. Core expressions include Glenturret 10 Years, Glenturret 12 Years, and Glenturret Peated Edition. Additionally, the distillery offers limited special editions and exclusive vintage whiskies, highly coveted by collectors and connoisseurs.
