“It takes a lifetime to build a good reputation, but you can lose it in a minute” the saying goes. Similarly in whisky, building the visibility, awareness and reputation of a distillery doesn’t happen overnight. There’s a raft of distilleries I would classify as presently underappreciated – Deanston is one of them. Though owners Distell have clearly heavily invested in the distilleries across their portfolio, Deanston still feels a little like the neglected younger brother.
