The buildings of the Deanston distillery were originally  a cotton mill. The cotton mill which had been there since 1785 closed in the early 1960's and was turned into a distillery at a time when the whisky industry was doing very well. The characteristics of the building and its location on the banks of the river Teith was ideal for whisky production made the mill ideal for a whisky distillery. Production at the new distillery started in 1966. The distillery was built by the Deanston Distillery Company, but was taken over by Invergordon in 1972. The distillery closed in 1982 before being acquired by Glasgow distillers Burn Stewart in 1990. Only about 15% of the Deanston malt whisky produced is marketed as single malt, the remaining being used in blends such as Black Prince and in the Wallace liqueur.

Deanston is a pale, distinctive malt, distilled from unpeated malted barley and is available as a 12 and 17 years old Single Malt Scotch Whisky. It is exceptionally easy-to-drink and is regarded as a perfect expression of a Perthshire Highland Malt.
 

Deanston Tasting Notes


Deanston 12 Year Old Single Malt.
Deanston 12 year old malt is a fine mellow malt with a fragrant, fruity flavour and a lingering sweet aftertaste.

Deanston 17 Year Old Single Malt.
Deanston 17 years old has a fabulous bitter sweet nose. Taste is initially oaky dry then a surge of malt sweetens things up a little. Finish is oaky with a dry coconut nuttiness.
