The Famous Grouse Experience shortlisted for Tourism, Leisure and Hospitality Business of the Year

The Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret Distillery has been shortlisted at the 2016 Courier Business Awards in the Tourism, Leisure and Hospitality Business of the Year category.

The prestigious award recognises businesses across Dundee, Perthshire and Fife who show exceptional commitment to the region, encouraging service excellence and a dedication to adding value to the area. With over 80,000 visitors a year, The Famous Grouse Experience showcases a vibrant combination of whisky heritage, Scottish culture and exceptional food, drink and entertainment at their picturesque site at Glenturret Distillery in Crieff.

It has been a busy year for Scotland’s most popular whisky visitor attraction, who have been recognised by ASVA as Best Visitor Experience 2015 and Icons of Whisky for Best Whisky Experience 2015. The last 12 months has seen the introduction of a new range of Tasting Experiences, as well as an increased retail offering in the successful ‘Famous Shop’ and the partnership with local caterers Wilde Thyme flourish in the Café-Restaurant.

Stuart Cassells, General Manager at The Famous Grouse Experience, said:

“We’re delighted to be shortlisted for the Courier Business Awards and acknowledged for our commitment to both the tens of thousands of visitors we welcome every year and the region we call home. To be recognised in the Tourism, Leisure and Hospitality Business of the Year category is a real testament to the hard work of everybody who makes The Famous Grouse Experience what it is, from the tour guides, retail staff to the excellent service in our Café-Restaurant.”

The team at The Famous Grouse Experience will have to wait until October 29th when the winners will be announced at a glittering award ceremony at Dundee’s Apex City Quay Hotel.
