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.

I come here a lot with tour groups and they always look after us well. I love the haggis and cheese toastie, the tray bakes and of course the whisky! Well worth visiting especially after a visit to nearby Doune Castle.

Was very busy with coaches! Staff were still happy to help us though. Sadly the whisky was not to taste - having quite a harsh alcohol bite to it rather than smooth

This was one of the larger distilleries that we toured while in Scotland. It had more of an industrial feel than some of the other places. Overall, it was nice.

We enjoyed the tour and tasting. Very interesting to see how scotch whiskey is made. The tour is about an hour.
