Deanston Chronicles Series Edition 2 52.5%

This exceptional, distillery exclusive release tells Deanston story. The 1975 Oloroso cask captures the essence of our early years, when the liquid was originally intended for blending but soon found its voice as a single malt in the 70s. The 1995 French Wine cask reflects the reopening of Deanston Distillery and the beginning of a new chapter in our legacy following a period of closure. The 2006 Armagnac cask takes us into the 2000s, a decade of innovation where we introduced our non-chill filtered process to preserves and celebrate the waxy core of our spirit. The 2012 Port Cask represents the opening of our cherished visitor centre where we've welcomed thousands of whisky enthusiasts to explore the world of Deanston Highland Single Malt.

CASK INFORMATION

Distilled in 1975 with a 17 year finish in Oloroso Sherry Casks, the oldest liquid in this tale of time brings a thick, jam-like quality that enhances the natural viscosity of Deanston’s uniquely waxy character. The 1995 French Wine Cask brings a subtle berry fruitiness and a floral character that is not often present within our Highland Single Malt. Whilst the 2006 Armagnac’s rich, dark notes of toffee sweetness provide a stark contrast. Finally, the 2012 Port cask has a dry yet sweet quality to balance out the oak spice that comes from the Oloroso and French Wine Casks. A complex, multi-layered dram reflective of the colourful history of Deanston Distillery.

.

In Deanston we have a distillery located in the Southern Highlands region just north of the city of Stirling. The distillery building, once a cotton mill was converted in 1965 then production was ready to commence a year later. Having experienced a number of owners over the years in 2013 the South African based Distell Group acquired the distillery and then in 2022 Dutch brewer Heineken agreed to buy a majority stake in the group. 
Interestingly a hydro electric turbine was installed recently replacing an existing older one, and this provides a sustainable power source for the whole site.
Since the beginning of the millennium organic spirit has been produced every year for part of the year. Now this has been scaled down to make way for the increased production of the more traditional Deanston single malt to keep up with customer demand. 
All the single malts are handcrafted and the core range are laid to rest in mainly bourbon casks. The signature style is unpeated, deliciously smooth with sweeter honey flavours. There are also some great limited editions and distillery exclusives available. The distillery is not afraid to experiment and in 2021 a new whisky named Dragon's Milk finished in stout casks! was released.
