Description

On September 4th, 2008, this whisky embarked on a 12-year maturation journey within the hallowed confines of Deanston Distillery's vaulted ceiling warehouse, resting in Oloroso sherry casks.

The result is a harmonious marriage between the dry, nutty sherry tones imparted by the Oloroso casks and the smooth, honeyed character of Deanston single malt. Together, they create a delightful synergy of flavors, where treacle toffee and fruity notes seamlessly intertwine with festive spices.

This limited-edition whisky, totaling 13,227 bottles, is bottled at a robust 52.7% ABV. It proudly retains its non-chillfiltered nature and the rich, natural color derived from the maturation process, making it a truly distinctive and exceptional whisky.

Tasting Note by Deanston:
Nose: Cherries and chocolate reminiscent of a black forest gateaux, followed by sweet spice, nutmeg and sultanas.
Palate: Treacle toffee, dark fruits and festive spice with hints of mocha and a touch of pine.
Finish: Long and warming finish with notes of gingerbread and nutmeg.

    Deanston Distillery: Craftsmanship Rooted in Scottish Heritage

    Deanston Distillery, situated on the banks of the River Teith in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, is celebrated for its craftsmanship rooted in Scottish heritage. Founded in 1966, the distillery is located within a former cotton mill, making it a unique and historically significant whisky-producing site. Deanston whiskies are known for their handcrafted and natural approach, with a commitment to using local ingredients and sustainable practices. The distillery employs traditional production methods, including open-topped wooden washbacks and copper pot stills, which contribute to the authentic and characterful nature of its whiskies. Each sip of Deanston whisky is a reflection of the distillery's dedication to preserving its history and producing whiskies that embody the essence of the Scottish Highlands.

    The Unique Cotton Mill Heritage of Deanston Distillery

    What sets Deanston Distillery apart and makes it truly unique is its location within a former cotton mill, which plays a significant role in its history and character. The distillery's conversion from a 18th-century cotton mill to a whisky-producing site in the 1960s brought new life to the building while preserving its industrial heritage. The cotton mill's thick stone walls and vaulted ceilings provide the ideal environment for whisky maturation, ensuring a stable and consistent temperature throughout the year. Deanston's commitment to sustainability is evident in its use of hydroelectric power generated from the nearby River Teith, making it one of the few distilleries in Scotland to be almost entirely self-sufficient in energy production. Additionally, the distillery sources barley locally, supporting the agricultural community and emphasizing its connection to the surrounding Highland landscape. The result is a whisky that not only embodies the character of the Scottish Highlands but also carries the rich history and heritage of the cotton mill, making Deanston Distillery a cherished destination for whisky enthusiasts seeking a taste of tradition and craftsmanship.
