The story begins in 1785 with the opening of Deanston Cotton Mill. The mill was at the very heart of the community, providing employment to around 1500 people. The mill flourished and as the workforce grew, a self contained village was created, with housing and grocers - buildings which continue to form the center of modern day Deanston. The village and community were so self contained they even had their own currency; due to a shortage of currency during the Napoleonic wars, French and Spanish coins were stamped and known as ‘Deanstons’.
Changing times meant Deanston Cotton Mill had to close but in 1965 the Mill found a new life as the home of Deanston hand crafted Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Situated on the banks of the River Teith, powered by sustainable energy, with an abundance of clear, soft water and a cool, bespoke Weaving Shed, perfect for whisky maturation, Deanston Distillery was born.
True to its heritage, Deanston still values traditional, handcrafted techniques. No modern technology is used and only the best local ingredients are sourced.
