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.

We arrived early so had a small bite to eat and the food was delicious with great service. The tour was good, not too long, and the guide was incredibly knowledgable. The gift shop was lovely too.

We have a lovely cup of tea and piece of cake before our tour. The tour was interesting and the whisky was also very good.

Take the tasting room tour, might be slightly more expensive but is the exact same tour but with additional tasting of the local produce, Deanston 18yr old is well worth the additional cost. Declan our tour guide was very informative and made the tour interesting
