Deanston Virgin Oak

Deanston Virgin Oak

The Deanston distillery sits on the banks of the River Teith, the river which acts as the distillery's water source. The waters of the River Teith are among Scotland’s purest and the headwaters rise in the Trossach mountain range. Deanston was founded in 1965 on the site of an 18th century weaving shed, just outside the village of Doune in Perthshire.

The main part of the distillery is sited in a listed cotton mill. A turbine and dam, which employ the waters of the Teith, render Deanston electrically self-sufficient. In 1971, the first single malt Scotch whisky was released from Deanston and named Old Bannockburn. A year later, the distillery was under Invergordon ownership. Deanston had been closed for some eight years when Burn Stewart Distillers acquired the distillery for the princely sum of £2.1million and a year later Deanston distillery was back in production. A further four years after that and the site played host to a gin distillery as well.

This Deanston is first matured in ex-bourbon casks from a family run cooperage in Kentucky, creating its subtle but zesty character, the golden spirit is then finished in Virgin Oak casks, adding subtle spicy aromas.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Heady virgin oak, bursting with lemon zest and sweet barley sugar, with delicious notes of apple and nutmeg.

Palate: A delightful sweetness, evoking memories of candied fruits and vanilla toffee, balanced with heather honey.

Finish: A satisfying light spice, with a rewarding burst of honeyed malt and sweet oakiness.
