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 (something that's reflected in our contemporary bottle design and packaging today).
The end result is a lighter-tasting single malt that doesn't compromise on quality.

John Morrison saw a golden vision of the future as the pure crystal spring water rushed from the Black Hill through the Highland peatlands. A dreamer and visionary, he saw a clear opportunity to turn this gift from nature into something to be treasured.
Our small distillery was established in 1894 and through the years its production methods have hardly changed. History, heritage, 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 proudly named after its Black Hill origins, anCnoc.

125 years later, that picture of the past is still present, thanks to John Morrison’s pioneering spirit.
At the time of our establishment in 1894, we were considered the perfect embodiment of a modern distillery. We still live and work by that traditional approach while embracing the changing times of the present to bring you two new releases: anCnoc 16 Years Old and Peat in celebration of Knockdhu’s 125th anniversary and our modern tradition.
