In a former life, the part of their distillery where this whisky matured had been a weaving shed (and the distillery as a whole had been a mill). So, in their more nostalgic moments, they think of their Oloroso sherry casks as looms of flavour interlacing the characteristics of their former occupant – a dry nutty sherry – with those of the new inhabitant – the soft, single malt, they replete with treacle toffee and fruit, the whisky is a sensual treat. 

They only use high quality ingredients sourced from local farms to craft their unique whisky. Expertly combined, they give Deanston a soft, sweet & honeyed character that truly embodies our industrious spirit.

NOSE: Cherries and chocolate reminiscent of a black forest gateaux, followed by sweet spice, nutmeg and sultanas.

PALATE: Treacle toffee, dark fruits and festive spice with hints of mocha and a touch of pine.
