Product Description

Located just outside the town of Doune in Perthshire, the Deanston Distillery is located on the banks of the River Teith. Originally a cotton mill, it was converted to a distillery in the 1960s and like many others prospered in the whisky boom of the 1970s when it was purchased by Invergordon Distillers. The 'Great whisky lake' of the 1980s saw many distilleries mothballed as supply exceeded demand, this included Deanston which closed in 1982. In early 1990 the distillery was purchased by Burn Stewart Distillers, with the intention of primarily utilizing its produce into blends such as the 'Scottish Leader' (not seen in Australia). Today, somewhere in the region of 15% of whisky produced at Deanston is destined to be bottled as stand alone single malt. Bottled un-chill filtered, Deanston has been aged in ex-bourbon barrels for an average of 12 years. Master Distiller at Deanston, Ian MacMillan comments "...we ‘marry’ the component casks of this whisky in new oak for a few weeks prior to bottling, as this gives us more sweetness. You’ve already got a sweeter whisky with more oak anyway, due to the lack of chill-filtration.”
