Glenturret

Postby hawk62 » Fri Aug 24, 2001 12:07 am

When I was in Scotland in May, I stumbled across the Glenturret distillery near Creif. They gave a very nice tour and tasting. They also had a nice shop and I bought a bottle of Glenturret 18 year which I enjoyed very much. Since I have returned, I have not been able to find a source of Glenturret. Does anyone know where I can buy Glenturret 12 year, 15 year or 18 year?

Thanks and regards, Jim

Jim,

Where do you live?, because the availability depends from country to country
I like Glenturret too, very very much, my favorites are the 18Y old and the classic vintage 1966

I live in Washington state, U.S. Any suggestions as to a source of Glenturret would be appreciated.

Yes, I have seen that site and a couple of others that have very expensive cask strength Glenturret. I want 12 yr, 15 yr or 18 yr regular strength. (Preferably the 15 yr.)

Thanks and regards, Jim

Jim,

What I mostly do is order it directly from the distillery, perhaps in your case also a very good thing to think of, but I believe that the San Francisco Whisky Shop is also capable to order some Glenturret for you.....

Slainte,

Glenturret doesn't ship to the USA. I only know of one foreign source of whisky that does ship to the USA and they go through a local (US) company. US import regulations for liquor are very cumbersome. I will try a special order from one of the domestic mail order companies.

Thanks and regards, Jim

Fiona Murdoch at the whisky shop sends people stuff that they can't get in America.

I found that nearly all shops here in Holland can at least order the Glenturret. It usually takes a week or so before the bottle arives there then.
Did you know about 80% of the Glenturret gets saled at the distillery shop? I've been there too, it's a very nice distillery, although maybe indeed a li'll touristic. I heard they recently opened a "Famouse Grouse Experience"? (need I say more? Image)

I was in Gordon& Mcphails recently and I'm sure they said they had some kind of distribution rights whether thats just in the UK?

They have a web site but I don't know the address, also Loch Fynne whisky shop has good prices and range!!!!

Since starting my love affair with the water of life I have had the truly disappointing experience of attempting to procure whisky here in Arizona by means of other web distributors. Bah! Our local draconian laws are keeping me from acquiring some hard-to-find whiskies.
Most sites won't even let you order, or if they do it's like rolling the dice on whether you actually receive your whisky.

What's a poor yank to do?
Sigh,

Hi Pdubya,

I have send some stuff too, to the US, and that came in very good.... It depends how you package the goodies...

Hi anna,

Why buy them, the Scottish tarts? You can bake them your self, wich is not only fun doing it, but also very delicious..
