Gleneagles, the renowned hotel and country estate in the heart of Perthshire, has joined forces with its neighbour, The Glenturret Distillery, to create the very first Gleneagles single malt.

With a focus on their shared locality and pursuit for excellence, these two famous Scottish brands have united to release 750 hand-numbered bottles of the hotel’s own whisky. This is the first of an ongoing commitment to produce further batches from both The Glenturret and Gleneagles over the next five years.

Equally synonymous with luxury, adventure, and discovery in the heart of Perthshire, Gleneagles and Crieff-based The Glenturret’s whisky-maker Bob Dalgarno have worked closely over the last year to craft this extraordinary whisky.

The 11-year-old single malt has tasting notes of toffee, cinnamon, and vanilla alongside aromatic flavours of dark spice, rich fruit cake and warm ginger, reminiscent of fireside evenings at Gleneagles.

Each 70cl bottle is hand-numbered and available to purchase now at Gleneagles’ dedicated whisky boutique, The Still Room, for £79. It will also be available to order by the dram in the hotel’s Century Bar and American Bar.

Daniel Baernreuther, hotel manager at Gleneagles, says: “We have always been committed to working with the finest Scottish food and drink producers, but when the opportunity arose to work with our close neighbours at The Glenturret to create our own limited-edition product, we jumped at the chance.

“There have been so many changes over the last few years at Gleneagles. As a natural progression and evolution of our beverage and whisky programme, creating our own whisky was the next logical step and because of our shared location, I feel like this is really a match made in whisky heaven.”

The Glenturret’s managing director, John Laurie, adds: “We are truly excited about this project. The Glenturret is Scotland’s oldest working distillery, and really important to Scottish history and heritage. Gleneagles is such an icon of hospitality that we sincerely felt there was something special to be celebrated here.”
