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.
