The Deanston Distillery is located on the banks of the River Teith, just outside the town of Doune in Perthshire. 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. While the Vaulted warehouse was the weaving shed.
During 1965-66 the cotton mill converted, to a distillery by the Deanston Distillery Co Ltd. This included taking out four internal floors to accommodate the stills and other equipment.
