    The Spirit of Community

    Housed in a former cotton mill, Deanston distillery takes inspiration from its roots, maintaining a traditional handcrafted approach to whisky making. Every drop of Deanston single malt is a marriage of the finest local ingredients and the craftsmanship of the distillery team, creating the wonderful, fresh, honeyed sweetness for which the distillery is known. The distillery's commitment to traditional methods embodies the spirit of the small Highland community of Deanston, and makes Deanston the unique single malt it is today.

    The 18 Year Old annual release from Deanston receives an initial maturation in second-fill casks before being transferred to first-fill Kentucky bourbon casks and returned to the distillery's vaulted warehouse. The metre-thick stone walls and roof of the warehouse ensure a constant temperature, delivering a smooth and even maturation that amplifies the signature Deanston flavour profile of sweet honeyed fruits and a deep rich finish.
