Deanston Union 2020 Release 54.8%
We were one of the first distilleries to experiment with organic barely back in the early noughties. The whisky has been matured in bourbon barrels and then finished in organic Fino sherry casks from the Bodegas Robles in our historic bodega like Warehouse 2.
A cask strength bottling we are delighted with the results, we hope you are too! Packed with vanilla, creamy toffee, sweet tropical fruit, roasted nuts and a hint of spicy cinnamon, this is the perfect dram to welcome old and new members to The Union bottlings.
Please note this whisky is a limited edition of 1,300 bottles and has been ‘hand filled’ with care at the distillery.

Our home is far from the quaint Highland distilleries that may come to mind when you think about whisky in Scotland. Formerly a bustling cotton mill that in its heyday employed 1500 people, the building and community of Deanston were facing uncertainty when it closed for good in 1965… enter our founder; Brodie Hepburn.
We source only the finest Scottish Barley, close in proximity to our distillery, in partnership with local farmers. It’s not the norm to only use Scottish barley, but it’s important to us. We use traditional, hands-on methods and fermentation that takes far longer, because it’s the right thing to do, transforming the grain into the waxy, soft, smooth highland single malt we’re known for.
