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 flavour. 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.
