Our story begins in 1785, with the opening of Deanston Cotton Mill. As its sheets and curtain lace became popular, the workforce grew, and the town of Deanston ourished.
Sadly, as the fabric industry declined, the mill closed in April 1965. But as one era ended, a new one began. When Deanston Distillery opened on the banks of the River Teith the following year, the tight-knit community soon embraced a new skill – hand crafting single malt whisky.
Today, this same skill, heritage and tradition continues. It’s why Deanston is more than bricks and mortar – and why our single malt is truly unique.
