Product details

A more unusual offering from the Highland Deanston distillery, which you’ll find housed in an old cotton mill on the banks of the River Teith – the distillery is powered using hydro energy, selling excess electricity to the National Grid! Thanks to its still shape and reflux, Deanston is known for its light, waxy new make spirit.

This particular release saw 12 years of maturation, the final two of which were spent resting in ex-Calvados casks. Calvados is a French brandy produced from apples (and sometimes pears) in the Calvados region of Normandy, and the fruits really come through in the flavour, along with stone fruit, baking spices, and pastry-like notes, all of which have made their way into this bright, fruity whisky.
