On the banks of the River Teith, near Stirling, Scotland, sits an old cotton mill. This mill has always been at the very heart of Deanston. As the mill flourished, so did the village. For 200 years the mill provided work for the community. Changing times and economic pressures resulted in the closure of the cotton mill in 1965 but was it deemed to be the perfect place to make whisky.
When the new distillery formally opened in January 1967 a new craft was born. Three floors were removed to accommodate four copper stills and a mash tun. The even temperature in the former weaving shed was selected as the ideal resting place for the whisky to mature.
The fresh clear waters of the river Teith provided an abundance of water with a spicy quality. This gives the whisky an unique subtle flavour. The fast flowing river also provides hydro electricity to the distillery, making it the only distillery in Scotland to be self sufficient in power.
