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 have been fairly regular visitors over recent years and have never been let down by the food. Yesterday when we visited the coffee was not hot enough for us. This was addressed without question. We will happily return. We cannot comment on the Distillery...More

I did a tour of the distillery with Brian last week. He did an amazing job sharing all his knowledge of the history and production processes of Deanston. It was fun and engaging, and we got to taste the whisky, too! Definitely recommend :)

Had lunch while we visited the distillery and we had a nice time in the restaurant. Small place but worth the visit. Tried what was served as “Today’s special”.
