The Deanston distillery sits on the banks of the River Teith, which is where the distillery draws it's water from. The waters of the River Teith are among Scotland’s purest. The distillery is housed within the remnants of a cotton mill built in 1785. A turbine and a dam makes this distillery electrically self sufficient.
Deanston is typically bottled at 46.3% abv. The reason for this is that whisky bottled above 46% does not require chill-filtration as the high alcohol content does not allow for haze to form at low temperatures.
