Glenturret Distillery has been shortlisted at the Perthshire Chamber of Commerce Business Star Awards 2015. Scotland’s oldest working distillery faces tough competition in the Excellence in Food & Drink category, as it will now go head to head with other local food & drink businesses for the title.
2015 is a big year for the Crieff-based visitor attraction as Glenturret distillery celebrates its 240th year of producing whisky ‘By Hand and By Heart’. The shortlisting is another great achievement for the distillery, having also recently been nominated for two Icons of Whisky Awards 2016.
In what has been Scotland’s Year of Food and Drink, Glenturret has truly made its mark on the whisky world, launching a limited edition malt, The Brock Malloy, which sold out within weeks, as well as their Commonwealth Games 2014 Single Malt being named in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
Stuart Cassells, the driving force behind Glenturret’s return to the limelight commented:
“We’re thrilled to have been nominated for this award, especially by our local Perthshire business community. The category is so diverse but we hope that Glenturret gets the recognition it deserves as the last remaining hand mashed whisky in Scotland.
“We’re looking forward to marking our 240th birthday and to win the Business Star Award in the same month would be a fantastic celebration for all those involved in Glenturret!”
The Business Star Awards recognise the very best of local companies in Perthshire in what has been an outstanding year for businesses of all sizes in the area. The winners of this year’s awards will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony taking place on 20th November at Crieff Hydro.
