Perthshire distillery gears up for Games role

The Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret Distillery in Crieff, Perthshire, is gearing up to welcome hundreds of additional visitors over the next 17 days as the spiritual home to The Famous Grouse, Official Whisky Provider to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Over 1 million spectators, and 6500 athletes and team officials are expected to attend the Games in the coming weeks. Scotland’s tourism sector is expecting a surge in footfall as a result. With a clutch of world records of its own to show off, thousands hoping to see new world records set in Scotland can be guaranteed a record breaking holiday snap at The Famous Grouse Experience with the World’s Largest Bottle of Whisky or a statue of our distillery cat Towser, the World’s Greatest Mouser.  

Stuart Cassells, General Manager of The Famous Grouse Experience, commented:   “I am very excited about our role in this historic event. The Famous Grouse is a proud sponsor of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, and Glenturret is not only Scotland’s oldest working distillery, offering visitors a unique whisky experience, but our hand produced rare and exceptional single malt is also a key ingredient in the world’s favourite blended whisky, The Famous Grouse.”  

“I look forward to welcoming guests to our beautiful distillery from around the globe and sharing a traditional Scottish dram with them in toast of the inevitably inspirational athletic achievements of our great nations.”  

Multi award winning tourism operator Rabbie’s are working with The Famous Grouse Experience to provide visitors to Glasgow daily tours leaving right from the heart of the city at 9am, straight to the door of the Distillery, and back into the city that same day.

At just £45 per person, the tour includes travel to and from Glasgow, a private tour of the Distillery and lunch. VIP tours are also available for those visitors interested in learning how to blend their own whisky.
