The story begins in 1785 with the opening of the Deanston Cotton Mill. The mill, which manufactured cotton and lace, flourished. As the workforce grew, they were paid with the mill's own currency and houses owned by the mill, were built for them. However, in the 1920s, cotton demand declined and the mill closed in 1965.
When the Deanston distillery formally opened in 1967, the mill's location on the banks of the River Teith made it the ideal home for a distillery; the constant cool temperature in the weaving shed being perfect for maturation. But what makes the distillery truly special goes far beyond its bricks and mortar. It's about the heritage that lies within. It's about tradition. No modern technology is used in the making of the Single Malts.
Each bottle is crafted by hand to giving the authentic, creamy, sweet, honey blossom taste that is unmistakably Deanston.
