Since its opening in 1924, Gleneagles Hotel has been described as ‘A Riviera in the Highlands’ and ‘the eighth wonder of the world’. Now 90-years-old, the resort is offering guest, some unique offers to celebrate.
Guests at the Perthsire resort now have the opportunity to sample a special blend of whisky, along with great value guest accommodation packages.
A special blend
Gleneagles is offering a 'whisky experience'. Where guests can discover the art, skill and craft of whisky blending. You can have a go at creating your own whisky elixir to enjoy at the bar and then take home your memento as a gift.
You can also try your luck at whisky blending. Using a selection of carefully chosen malts, the ‘perfect pour’ experience will teach you how to identify, savour and blend the various flavours of whisky.
As part of the ‘perfect pour’ guests can stay from £345 per room, per night based on two people sharing a Sovereign room, including breakfast and whisky blending for two.

Gleneagles and the Ryder Cup
The Perthshire destination will host the 40th edition of the famous match between Europe and America.
Matches will be played on the PGA Centenary Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, on September 26-28, and Nicklaus believes this shows the pedigree of Gleneagles.
“I’m proud the 2014 Ryder cup is at Gleneagles on the PGA Centenary Course,” said Nicklaus. “Our aim was to make it a better golf course and I think we’ve achieved that.”
