The No-Frills Scotch.

Deanston distillery started not as a distillery, but as a cotton mill, way back in 1785. Soon, the village of Deanston which is located in the Highland region of Scotland, began to form and a community was slowly built. In 1965 the cotton mill was closed, and looking for ideas, people at the company began making Whisky. Deanston uses no modern technology to produce their Single Malts and each bottle is hand-crafted. They’re uniquely the only distillery in Scotland self-sustaining for electricity, being equipped with a dam and a turbine, undoubtedly from the time of the cotton mill.

Deanston 12 Year Old Single Malt was recently relaunched in the form you see now. The new release is bottled at a higher proof, which amplified the Whisky’s subtle flavor. Matured for 12 years in ex-Bourbon barrels, this is a no-frills Scotch. It’s the daily-dose-of-Scotch from the Highlands. It's won many awards in the past 2 years, including IWSC Gold Outstanding and Double Gold at SFWSC.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
All Whisky is still aged onsite in the original weaving shed. It has the capacity to hold 45,000 casks at a time.
