The Glenturret distillery was founded in 1775 making it the oldest operating distillery in Scotland today. There are records of a distillery in the area from as early as 1717 and some of the buildings on the present site date from 1775. Glenturret was first known as Hosh Distillery. Its current name dates back to 1875. The distillery closed from 1921 until 1959, when it was reopened by James Fairlie who refurbished it. It changed hands a few more times over the years till eventually it was in the hands of the Edrington Group when they took over the Highland DistillersGroup in 1999.

About 70% of the production at Glenturret is sold as single malt, the remaining malt is used in blends like Glenturret Malt Liquor, Fairlie Liquor and the Famous Grouse.
