Deanston reveals 40 year old Highland malt

Distell brand Deanston has released a limited-edition 40 year old Highland single malt.

Handcrafted using Scottish ingredients, Deanston 40 Year Old (45.6% ABV) is unchill-filtered for an authentic and natural taste. The spirit has been stored in whisky refill casks before spending the last 10 years of its maturation in Oloroso sherry butts.

Recently rebranded to reflect its community roots and handcrafted identity, Deanston’s new look includes a bespoke bottle and capsule with etchings, that celebrate its history as a cotton mill at the heart of its community. The malt is safely secured by a wooden cork featuring a recessed Deanston coin, which also harks back to the days of the cotton mill, when this was used as actual currency in the village.

Deanston 40 Years Old is presented in the new custom-made bottle with textured metal labels. This rare release comes in a box lined with leather and a premium plaque. Less than 500 bottles of the single malt are available in whisky outlets worldwide from at an RRP of £1,000.

Carina Gous, Distell, says: “Heavily influenced by its past, Deanston Distillery’s close-knit team have handcrafted and nurtured this special single malt using traditional equipment and methods, barley from local farmers and soft water from the River Teith.

“Deanston whiskies are renowned for their distinctive fresh, honeyed sweetness and the 40 Year Old is the perfect showcase of this high-quality range of Highland single malts."
