anCnoc 16 Year Old Cask Strength 56.3% 125th Anniversary
This limited-edition whisky has been released to mark the 125th anniversary of Knockdhu Distillery and the spirit of their founder, John Morrison.
The Knockdhu Distillery, established in 1894 and one of the smallest and most enchanting in the Scottish Highlands, nestles quietly in the shadow of the mysterious Black Hill.
A distillery like no other, traditional production methods are used to craft a curiously modern Single Malt. Proudly named anCnoc, meaning simply ‘the hill’ in Gaelic, every drop of this remarkable Scotch Whisky celebrates its Highland home. Our history, pride and passion run through Knockdhu’s majestic stills today, just as they did all those years ago to create a thoroughly modern yet traditional spirit.
