MM Distillery profile:
Glenturret in the Midlands claims to be Scotland's oldest whisky distillery. In fact, they have boldly put that claim on their distillery buildings. Hmmm... That's a little odd - given the fact that those buildings were not refurbished before the late 1950's - and I'm pretty sure distillation of whiksy had been invented at least three centuries earlier. There has been another distillery by the name of Glenturret in the area (constructed in 1826), but that was closed again within a few decades - and had nothing to do with this one.
.... More on Malt Madness.
