Famous Grouse Experience shortlisted for tourism award

22 August, 2016

The Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret Distillery has been shortlisted at the Courier Business Awards in the tourism, leisure and hospitality business of the year category.

The award recognises businesses across Dundee, Perthshire and Fife which show exceptional commitment to the region, encouraging service excellence and a dedication to adding value to the area.

With more than 80,000 visitors a year, The Famous Grouse Experience showcases a combination of whisky heritage, Scottish culture and food, drink and entertainment at its Glenturret distillery in Crieff.

Scotland’s most popular whisky visitor attraction has been recognised by the Association of Scottish Visitor Attractions (ASVA) as ‘Best Visitor Experience 2015’ and Icons of Whisky for ‘Best Whisky Experience 2015’.

William Grant says the last 12 months has seen the introduction of a new range of tasting experiences, as well as an increased retail offering in the Famous Shop and the partnership with local caterers Wilde Thyme flourish in the café-restaurant.

The Famous Grouse Experience team will have to wait until October 29 when the winners will be announced at an award ceremony at Dundee’s Apex City Quay Hotel.
