Deanston Distillery was previously a successful cotton mill. As the industry declined, the mill was converted to a whisky distillery in the 1960’s and its visitor centre opened in 2012. It features in one of the big whisky films “The Angels’ Share” along with Glengoyne and Balblair.
One way of exploring and developing whisky flavours is by cask finishing. Deanston Distillery specialises in this and over the years has produced whisky finished in a variety of ways including an American Craft Ale Finish.
