Product details

This is a cask-finished single malt from the Highland-based Deanston distillery! It spent the majority of its life in ex-bourbon casks from a family-run cooperage in Kentucky, before it was moved to brand new virgin oak casks for a finishing period. Not only are Deanston’s whiskies certified by the Organic Food Association, but the distillery is also powered using hydro energy, selling excess electricity to the National Grid. It’s based in an old mill on the banks of the fast-flowing River Teith, and was used for weaving until whisky production started in 1969.

Virgin oak can be overpowering, but that’s certainly not an issue here, with the cask finish adding subtle spicy flavours among the creamy, fruity flavours from the maturation.
