Deanston Distillery, Highlands

Deanston Distillery, Highlands

This Highlands distillery is located at Doune, southwest of Perth. It is one of the most recently constructed distilleries in Scotland, founded in 1966 and converted from its previous use as a cotton mill.

The distillery prospered during the 1970s but closed during the recession of the mid-1980s. Spurred by the surge in demand in the late 1980s, the blenders Burn Stewart acquired Deanston in 1990 (along with Tobermory in 1993 and Bunnahabhain in 2003) and resumed production. In 2021 Dutch brewer Heineken took over the reins.

A mere 15% of the output at Deanston is bottled as single malt whisky; the rest is reserved for blends like Scottish Leader. The distillery range consists of a 12-year-old and an 18-year-old expression and numerous special releases, including a Tequila cask finish, a Bordeaux red wine cask finish, and a 1991 Muscat finish.
