Thanks to the guys at Deanston for a great tour. I was able to get a quick photo by one of the ancient stills. Great to see so many tourists visiting - I spoke to visitors from the US, Melbourne, Italy and elsewhere - all here on Whisky Tours.

Whisky is one of Scotlands largest export earners and represents approx 80% of all food and drink exports from Scotland.

Whisky exports are under some pressure though and declined 7% in 2015. The Whisky industry (especially the smaller independent Distilers need more help to access emerging markets). More to follow on this.
