    Deanston Distillery
    0 reviews

  • Our story begins in 1785 with the opening of the Deanston Cotton Mill - the very building that would one day become home to our fine single malt.

    The mill, which manufactured cotton sheets and curtain lace, became a valued source of employment in the area, with many highlanders making Deanston their home after being forced to leave their homes in the infamous clearances.

    This was a time of new beginnings; a move from agriculture to industrialisation and from Gaelic to English. Understandably, many locals were fearful of the changes, but, the mill soon began to flourish, and the workers were paid with the mill’s own currency (a shortage of coins at the time meant that the mill owners had to create their own, by branding foreign coins with the Deanston stamp).
