Our third release. Our least travelled spirit was distilled at Deanston distillery near Doune in Perthshire. The distillery sits on the banks of the river Teith which provides both the soft water for distilling quality spirit, and the mighty river drives the turbines that power the distillery. Housed in a former cotton mill, that once employed 1,500 people. It was converted into a distillery in 1965.
The Alpha Deanston was released in December 2021, having been fully matured in a first-fill bourbon barrel, since September 2009. The result is a beautiful golden spirit with soft, fresh taste with a super-smooth finish. Hard to believe it comes in at 56.3%
