Glenturret 15 Year Old 2022 Release Single Malt Whisky

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.
Glenturret’s 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 their new make spirit. It is a spirit that they can nurture and enrich over time; that will work with the wood, not against it; a spirit shaped by hand and heart.

The Glenturret 15 Years Old steps out on its own to deliver something different within Glenturret’s range. The influence of time becomes more prevalent. The subsequent impact that this has on flavour and the high percentage of European oak used to craft this expression, changes the direction and depth of character. The resulting complex whisky is laden with dried fruits and spices at an elevated strength of 53% ABV.
