Deanston Distillery is very unlike a traditional Scotch whisky distillery and has a number of unique production features which contribute to its distinct character in taste and look.
The spirit is handmade by a small team of local craftsmen who rely on traditional distilling techniques and their own eye to ensure quality; no technology or computers are used. Deanston uses only Scottish-grown barley and in 2000, was one of the first distilleries in Scotland to start producing organic whisky, certified by the Organic Food Federation and using barley grown in specially selected sites, free from pesticides and chemicals.
Deanston Single Malt whisky is sweet, fruity and balanced with a malty spiciness on the palate. All Deanston spirit is not chill filtered, ensuring an authentic tasting dram.
