Turrich distillery

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Turrich distillery was located in Glen Quaich, about three miles north-west of Amurlee in western Perthshire. It was sat at one of two farms – both today spelled Turrerich – which sit on the Turrerich and Easter Turrerich burns respectively, close to the northern end of Loch Freuchie. Both burns flow into the Loch which in turn feeds the River Braan as it wends its way north-eastward to enter the Tay opposite Dunkfield. 

Glen Quaich is considered to be one of the most beautiful glens in Scotland.

Licensed to John McTavish Sr. & Co. in 1817, Turrich’s doors were permanently closed just two years later in 1819. Both farms thought to be possible homes to the distillery still operate today.
