Glenturret names whisky after Gerard Butler
30 June 2016 by Melita Kiely

Glenturret distillery has named the latest whisky cask in its ‘Bottle Your Own’ series after teetotal Hollywood actor, Gerard Butler.

The Paisley-born Scotsman – known for his roles in films such as 300, PS I Love You and Law Abiding Citizen – follows in the footsteps of tennis player Andy Murray and actor Ewan McGregor, who have both been featured in the Bottle Your Own series.

The Gerard Butler limited edition whisky has been aged for 12 years in American oak ex-Sherry casks and bottled at 57% abv.

It was hand-selected by The Famous Grouse master blender Kirsteen Campbell, who took over from former master blender Gordon Motion earlier this year, and forms part of Glenturret distillery’s The Famous Grouse Experience.

The expression is available to purchase from the Glenturret distillery shop or online via the brand’s UK and global sites at an RRP of £75 per 700ml bottle.

‘Our Bottle Your Own experience has proven to be immensely popular,’ commented Stuart Cassells, general manager at The Famous Grouse Experience.

‘[Butler] may be a teetotaller, but he has a great appreciation for his home country. As such he will take his place in distillery history alongside the other Bottle Your Own "celebrities".’

In addition, £2 from every Gerard Butler bottle sold will be donated to a charitable cause.

Teetotal Gerard Butler honoured by oldest whisky distillery

Hollywood star Gerard Butler is putting the “dram” in drama after being honoured by Scotland’s oldest working whisky distillery.

The London Has Fallen actor, who is teetotal, is getting a cask named after him at the Famous Grouse Experience in Crieff.

Paisley-born Butler, 46, is the fourth celebrity to be honoured as part of the ‘Bottle Your Own’ campaign, following in the footsteps of Ewan McGregor, Andy Murray and the Earl and Countess of Strathearn, otherwise known as Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Butler’s single cask was hand-picked by master blender Kirsten Campbell. Limited edition bottles are now available at the distillery shop and online.

Butler, whose latest film Gods of Egypt is in cinemas now, is a regular visitor to Perthshire. His mother Margaret and stepfather Alex live in the village of Comrie.

General manager Stuart Cassels said: “Gerard Butler may be a teetotaller, but he has a great appreciation for his home country. As such he will take his place in distillery history, alongside the other Bottle Your Own celebrities.”

A donation of £2 from every bottle sold will be given to a good cause, Mr Cassels said.

Whisky cask named after ‘teetotal’ Gerard Butler

Scotch whisky distillery Glenturret has named a cask of whisky after Hollywood star Gerard Butler as it continues its Bottle Your Own campaign celebrating Scots who are “famous for a reason”.

The series of bottle-your-own single cask releases has already featured liquid from casks named after tennis player Andy Murray, actor Ewan McGregor and The Earl and Countess of Strathearn.

Now the Gerrard Butler cask will reside in the distillery shop with bottles available from the Glenturret brick-and-mortar and online stores.

Celebrity cask names for the casks are decided via an online poll to identify individuals “worthy of honour” who have close ties to the Crieff area, where the Famous Grouse Experience – home of The Glenturret Experience – is based.

“The Butler did it! Our Bottle Your Own experience has proven to be immensely popular and we’re excited to be continuing the Perthshire connection with Gerard Butler,” said Stuart Cassells, general manager at The Famous Grouse Experience.

“He may be a teetotaller but he has a great appreciation for his home country. As such he will take his place in distillery history alongside the other Bottle Your Own ‘celebrities’.

“Continuing our Bottle Your Own charity efforts, £2 from every bottle sold from the Gerard Butler cask will be donated to a good cause.”

Butler, who was born in Paisley, has reportedly said of visiting his mum: “I sit in the garden, I look up at the mountain ranges and I am just taken aback constantly by how beautiful it is there, and what a great land I come from. I love the humour there and I love the warmth. I just really connect when I get back.”

THE BUTLER DID IT: DISTILLERY’S EXCLUSIVE WHISKY CASK NAMED AFTER GERARD

Scottish actor Gerard Butler is about to be in a different sort of spotlight – as the famous name to adorn the next Bottle Your Own cask at Glenturret, Scotland’s oldest whisky distillery.


An exclusive cask of limited edition bottles named after the actor will be available at Glenturret’s Distillery shop, part of Crieff-based The Famous Grouse Experience. The news follows an online poll to identify individuals worthy of the honour, and who have close ties to the area, in which members of the public backed Gerard as a Scot who is “famous for a reason”.

The Bottle Your Own series is hand-picked as an exceptional cask from the Glenturret Distillery by The Famous Grouse Master Blender Kirsteen Campbell. These are extremely collectable and the bottles from these casks are only available from the Glenturret Distillery shop and online on both the UK and global sites.

Gerard follows in the steps of an illustrious line of Bottle Your Own ‘celebrities’ who have ties to the Perthshire area including fellow actor Ewan McGregor, tennis ace Andy Murray and The Earl and Countess of Strathearn. Gerard has close links to Crieff; his mum Margaret and stepdad Alex live in the nearby Perthshire village of Comrie and the Hollywood star is a regular visitor to the area.

The Hollywood-based actor, who was born in Paisley, has said of visiting his mum:

“I sit in the garden, I look up at the mountain ranges and I am just taken aback constantly by how beautiful it is there, and what a great land I come from. I love the humour there and I love the warmth. I just really connect when I get back.”

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

“The Butler did it! Our Bottle Your Own experience has proven to be immensely popular and we’re excited to be continuing the Perthshire connection with Gerard Butler. He may be a teetotaller but he has a great appreciation for his home country. As such he will take his place in Distillery history alongside the other Bottle Your Own ‘celebrities’. Continuing our Bottle Your Own charity efforts, £2 from every bottle sold from the Gerard Butler cask will be donated to a good cause.”
