Rest & Be Thankful took inspiration for their name from an inscription on a stone on top of Glen Croe in 1753, written by soldiers who were thankful to have made the long and steep ascent and had a place to rest. The company is the brainchild of Eamonn Jones and Aidan Smith, who between them run Fox Fitzgerald Whisky Trading Company. They developed a close relationship with ex-Bruichladdich directors & shareholders, Eamonn & Aidan proposed bottling their private casks of Bruichladdich, Octomore and Port Charlotte under the “Rest & Be Thankful name. Since then, the Rest & Be Thankful offering has evolved, and have included single casks from Scotland’s great distilleries such as Macallan, Highland Park, Springbank, Bunnahabhain and many more thus providing enthusiasts and malt lovers a spectrum of true expressions from the cask.
The Deanston Distillery is located on the banks of the River Teith, eight miles from the town of Stirling. It is the largest distillery owned by Burn Stewart Distillers Ltd, who also own Bunnahabhain Distillery and Tobermory distillery. Deanston Distillery was traditionally a working mill but was transformed into a distillery in 1966. The constant supply of pure water from the River Teith contributed to the decision to turn the mill into a distillery and Deanston is now one of only a handful of distilleries in Scotland to be self-sufficient in electricity, with power generated by an onsite hydro-electric facility. Deanston sits in the Highland single malt region of Scotland and produces whisky which is handmade by ten local craftsmen.
This single cask whisky was distilled in 2009 at the Deanston Distillery and it was placed in an ex bourbon cask and left to mature for 10 years. In March 2020 it was bottled at 57.1% abv by the Rest & Be Thankful Whisky Co. Only 316 bottles were produced for worldwide distribution.
