About:  Knockdhu Distillery in Banffshire opened its doors in 1894, thanks to the pioneering vision of our founder John Morrison, who brought the story of anCnoc (Gaelic for ‘the hill’ and pronounced ‘a-nock’) to life.

AnCnoc is a rather curious whisky. You see, this fine single malt is created using traditional production methods. It's just that we use them to make a refreshingly modern whisky.

The traditional methods used to bring AnCnoc to life may have stood the test of time, but in keeping with our whisky’s contemporary credentials we continue to embrace innovation and place sustainability at the heart of the production process. Recycling our waste and turning it to the benefit of our local environment ensures a successful marriage of time-honoured craftsmanship and an eco-friendly outlook.

Within our distillery grounds, we’ve developed a ground-breaking wetlands programme by using the excess waters from the mash house, tun room and spent lees from the spirit still. Instead of sending this away in tankers, we treat it onsite and then use it to support diverse plant and animal life around the distillery, return water to the local burn and remove inefficient vehicle miles. It’s an initiative which underlines our commitment to environmental sustainability and ecological balance.

Tasting Notes:  A superb addition to our current range, the AnCnoc 18 Years Old has matured in Spanish oak ex-sherry casks and American oak ex-bourbon barrels and has been bottled in its most natural form, neither chill-filtered nor coloured.  As a result this dram may develop a light haze with the addition of water or if kept at a cold temperature. This haze is a natural characteristic of whisky that is non chill-filtered.

Bronzed amber in colour, this delightful whisky is brimming with gentle spice and intense sweetness of dried fruits with added chocolate, ripe oranges and oiled leather.  The palate is full bodied and bold, with aromatic spices, fruit loaf and candied lemons are followed by a surge of vanilla, honey and caramel.  The finish transforms from peppery and hot to deliciously sweet and smooth.
