Deanston Distillery is situated outside the town of Doune, Perthshire, and lies on the banks of the River Teith, which rises in the nearby mountains of the Trossachs. As such its origins lie in the historic centre of Scotland, close to Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument and Bannockburn. The distillery buildings date back to 1785, when Deanston was actually operating as a cotton mill. It was converted to a full working distillery in 1966, taking advantage of the same requirement for an abundant supply of water and for controlled temperature and humidity in its storage cellar. Deanston was purchased by Burn Stewart Distillers in 1990. Parts of the distillery are so old that they are actually listed buildings. The waters of the River Teith are considered to be the purest in Scotland, and are used in the distillation at Deanston. The distillery is the source of 2 excellent Perthshire Highland Single Malts – Deanston 12 and 17 years old.
