Deanston Distillery is located 8 miles north of Stirling on the A84 near Doune, at the gateway to the dramatic Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park. No ordinary 'run of the mill' whisky tour, we are just 45 minutes from Edinburgh and Glasgow. Visit us and experience our traditional open mash tun, gleaming copper stills and our maturation warehouse 2b. During your visit taste our distinctive single malt whisky which is fruity with a malty spiciness on the palate. Our distillery cafe, The Coffee Bothy is the ideal place to sit back and enjoy a leisurely lunch or coffee and cake. Either 'pre-tour' or 'apres-tour' make time to visit The Coffee Bothy where all our food is freshly prepared and handmade in the distillery kitchen. Our friendly and knowledgable team look forward to welcoming you to Deanston Distillery. - Free Parking - Disabled Access - Distillery Shop - Distillery CafeAdditional Information:Set in the heart of Scotland, Deanston Distillery is an ideal starting point to take in the best of what Scotland has to offer.

First, their tour is very well done, and well worth doing. Small groups and you are touring the actual process, not a tourist exhibit. Learned more about the process of making scotch whisky than I expected. The samples were also really good. Don't forget to...More

It gives you an insight of how whisky is prepared and how to enjoy it. Furthermore you have the possibility to buy different types of blends and receive a good explanation on each bottle you might want to purchase.

Located on the banks of the River Teith, Deaston is quite unique. Once a cotton mill, they produce their own electricity, not to mention a specially crafted whisky. Worth a visit and tasting!

One of the smaller distilleries, but it's access-all-areas with friendly and informative guides. Nice location, easy drive from Stirling.
