Deanston 18 Years
Scotch company Burn Stewart Distillers has released two single malts, Deanston 18 Year Old and Ledaig 18 Year Old, both permanent, regular additions to the range for each of their respective brands.
Alison Gibb, Global Marketing Manager for Burn Stewart Malts, said: “It’s an exciting time in the Scotch whisky market. The new Deanston and Ledaig expressions demonstrate our continued commitment to grow the Burn Stewart malts portfolio and to offer our consumers more choice.
“We are passionate about tradition and craftsmanship, and both of these 18 Year Olds embody the painstaking care and attention to detail that goes into every drop.”
Both new whiskies have been crafted by Burn Stewart Master Blender, Ian MacMillan. Like all of the malts in the Burn Stewart portfolio, Deanston 18 Year Old and Ledaig 18 Year Old are not chill-filtered, helping ensure that more of the whisky’s natural aroma, flavor and texture remain in the bottle.
