Located 8 miles from Stirling near Doune and just 45 minutes from Edinburgh and Glasgow, Deanston Distillery sits by the River Teith at the entrance to the dramatic Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Having been a cotton mill for 180 years, Deanston was transformed into a distillery in the 1960’s and has been distilling whisky using traditional methods ever since. Visit us and experience the sights, smells and sounds of a true working distillery and we will show you how we hand craft our great whisky which is sweet, fruity with a malty honeyed spiciness on the palate.

The Coffee Bothy

Before and after your tour why not stop at The Coffee Bothy our distillery cafe. Enjoy a selection of wholesome food. Daily specials, light lunches and delicious soups are freshly made every day by our chefs. Choose also from our speciality coffees and teas, and then satisfy that sweet tooth with a scrumptious Bothy cake.
