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