Glenturret, previously called Hosh, is the second distillery to take the name Glenturret. It was renamed in 1875, some 20 years or so after the nearby original distillery of that name closed. It is one of Scotland's smallest distilleries with only two stills, it was silent between 1923 and 1959. It is situated on the banks of the river Turret, near Crieff in Perthshire. It is tucked away in a steep valley between fields and tree-covered hillsides. In the days of illegal distilling, this would have been a good hiding place. Today, Glenturret is home to "The Famous Grouse Experience" and is one of the most visited distilleries in Scotland.
