The Famous Grouse Experience

I always have a laugh when I pass this sign at the Glenturret Whisky Distillery near Crieff. The experience, as I recall, is nausea, vomiting and a splitting headache - but each to their own.



  1. Filthy stuff, but it's incredibly well marketed, especially overseas. Fabulous Goose is what most Americans think of when you mention malt whisky.

  2. The only whisky I drank on a regular basis was J&B Rare. That was our lunchtime tipple at the Silver Tassie pub in Hamilton when I worked there for the council. Probably because it wasn't too strong tasting. As you say it's all about marketing.
