The Deanston 2002 Port Cask Finish is another new Distillery Exclusive to add to the Deanston family in 2020, this 2002 Port Finish balances sweet toffee, fruit and spice with a long and lingering finish to create this delicious dram. Bottled at 51.1% abv and limited in number.
First filled in November 2002, this Distillery Exclusive was then transferred to Port Casks where it spent a further 2 years to finish in our vaulted warehouses. The result is a beautiful deep rose gold coloured whisky jam packed with treacle toffee, pear, nuts, honey and just a hint of spice.

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.
