Named IWSC’s Best Single Malt Whisky in the World (2023)
The Glenturret Triple Wood is a sweet and spicy yet soft whisky that builds on the distinctive fruity flavours of our new make spirit. Matured in American and European oak sherry seasoned casks alongside Bourbon barrels. The three different cask styles have been thoughtfully combined to create a whisky with an alluring golden colour and a delightful subtle character.
Natural in colour.
A NEW ADDITION INSPIRED BY OUR UNIQUE LANDSCAPE
The beautiful, rugged surroundings of our distillery have inspired smoke-filled aromas and flavours found in The Glenturret 7 Years Old Peat Smoked. American oak sherry seasoned casks build the confectionery sweetness from the new make spirit whilst delicate refill casks deliver the abundant smoky notes. Akin to the comforting shelter from a warm highland bothy on the fresh Loch Turret hills, the whiskys peated character heightens and amplifies from the outside in.
CELEBRATING THE EVOLUTION OF FLAVOURS FROM OUR BARLEY, SPIRIT AND CASKS
Peat features heavily in our distilling history - records show that The Glenturret dug peat from the mosses at our water source for whisky production in the early 1800s. The Glenturret 10 Years Old Peat Smoked celebrates the varying sources of peat now procured for our smoky whiskies. The smoke flavours are constantly evolving and changing through time. Our peated spirit style is matured in both first fill and second fill European and American oak casks. The resulting whisky forms a complex single malt that commands a higher strength of 50% ABV.
THE HEART OF OUR RANGE
Fewer than sixty carefully selected casks come together to create The Glenturret 12 Years Old - crafted by hand and forming the heart of our range. American oak hogshead casks drive the dessert like sweetness whilst European oak layers the dried fruits and spices leading to a full rich single malt.
A MOMENT IN TIME
The Glenturret 15 Years Old steps out on its own to deliver something different within our 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.
THE POWER OF THREE
The Glenturret 25 Years Old is a limited expression created from only three casks, each with a very different character. Stowed in our traditional Dunnage warehouses for a quarter of a century, two European oak Butts and one refill Hogshead almost hand paint a fruitful, rich canvas of flavour. This interesting meeting of casks forms a partnership that illustrates the benefits of long maturation and the skill required to assemble such differing whiskies.
This incredibly rare single malt elegantly balances both intense and light flavours and is testament to the importance of the Trinity that defines us.
The Trinity combines our extraordinary PROVENANCE of people, place and spirit with our traditional PROWESS in handcrafted whisky making and an enduring PASSION to bring whisky lovers moments to treasure in spirit and glass.
A RARE SELECTION OF CASKS
The Glenturret 30 Years Old is derived from a selection of the rarest casks found in our traditional Dunnage Warehouses. A Niepoort Portuguese oak cask drives the tropical flavours found in this single malt. This incredible cask is over one hundred years old and the dark port which it once held has developed a mesmerising warm ruby hue visible in this extraordinary whisky.
European oak sherry and Moscatel casks further enhance the whisky’s abundant rich characteristics whilst refill casks allow an array of fruit to make several welcome appearances.
The change of distillery owners through three decades have led to important learnings through time. This preservation and growth of knowledge has been pivotal in crafting this elegant single malt
