anCnoc Peat 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. Their 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.
The Peat is an intriguing, mellow journey from the heart of Banffshire’s rich peatlands, matured in American oak ex-bourbon casks then further matured in Spanish oak butts. The sunset gold liquid has characteristic notes of almonds and dried fruit. A stunning smoky, sweet dram.
