Kenmore Hotel

 

This evening, I am focusing on one of my favourite places -and hotels.

Kenmore is a small village located on the northern end of Loch Tay in Perthshire, Central Scotland. This is a wonderful place to relax and unwind in a semi-Highland setting. Read more on Kenmore, Scotland…



This evening, my theme is the small Glenturret Distillery in Perthshire. Here is produced a single which is a constituent of the Famous Grouse blend. In fact this distillery is marketed as the Famous Grouse Experience with associated marketing hype. Unfortunately, photography is restricted and hence paucity of images of the interior distilling process.

Entrance to Glenturret

Glenturret is possibly the oldest distillery in Scotland dating back to 1775 when it began as Hosh distillery. After many changes of ownership since start up, the distillery it was shut down in 1923 and thereafter reverted to the farming enterprise from it originally evolved. In the 1950s the distillery was reactivated by one James Fairlie and now forms part of the Highland Distillers Group. Sister brands include Highland Park, Cutty Sark and Macallan.The Famous Grouse is reported to be the best selling whisky in Scotland for the past 30 years. Read more on Famous Grouse Whisky Tour…
