Deanston Scotch whisky distillery is located on the banks of the River Teith, which rises in the nearby mountains of the Trossachs. This is the historic centre of Scotland, close to Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument and Bannockburn.
The buildings originally date back to 1785 and were designed by Richard Arkwright, the inventor of the spinning frame. The buildings originally operated as a cotton mill. The Vaulted warehouse was the weaving shed,
During 1965-66 the cotton mill was converted, to a distillery by the Deanston Distillery Co Ltd, This included taking out four internal floors to accommodate the stills and other equipment.
The Deanston distillery has two pairs of stills with quite narrow necks with ball-shaped bulges, the Lyne arms slope slightly upwards and are arranged to encourage a reflux action to deliver a purer lighter spirit.
