William and Kate will bottle their own Glenturret whisky at the country's oldest distillery, near Crieff in Perthshire.

As well as nosing and tasting fine malts, the couple will officially open the new-look Famous Grouse Experience visitor attraction which brings more than 100,000 people to the distillery each year.

Originally established as a single malt distillery in 1775, Glenturret is also blended with other grain and malt whiskies to create The Famous Grouse, one of the world's top five whiskies.

To welcome William and Kate - known as the Earl and Countess of Strathearn in Scotland - the distillery has commissioned a special pie with Glenturret as the key ingredient.

Stuart Cassells, manager of The Famous Grouse Experience, said: "It's an absolute pleasure to welcome the Earl and Countess of Strathearn to The Famous Grouse Experience.

"We're delighted that they'll be officially opening our newly-renovated site and look forward to hearing what they make of the Strathearn Pie."

During their trip, William and Kate will also visit Strathearn Community Campus in Crieff where they will meet young carers, Scouts, Cadets and Brownies.

They will then unveil a plaque in the town's newly-restored MacRosty Park.
