Deanston 17 Year
Deanston // Highlands, Scotland
In 1964, the large mill that occupied a site on the banks of the Teith River in the southern Highlands was converted to a distillery bearing the name Deanston. From 1972 to 1990, the distillery operated under Invergordon, but it is now part of the Burn Stewart portfolio under the stewardship of Ian MacMillan. Despite its relative youth among distilleries, Deanston has quickly made a name for itself among blenders who sought the distinct aromas and texture of the malt for their blends. Deanston 17 Year is a discontinued bottling of single malt, retired shortly after the distillery changed hands. Bottles are popular among collectors; however, as the years pass, they are getting harder to find. Bottled at 40% ABV.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
