About the Producer

Knockdhu Distillery in Banffshire opened its doors in 1894, thanks to the pioneering vision of their founder John Morrison, who brought the story of anCnoc to life. Picture an expanse of barley fields, with a rich supply of peat and crisp, clear springs of water close at hand. Couple that with the presence of the Great North of Scotland railway line on your doorstep and it’s not hard to see why John Morrison embraced the opportunity to turn a gift of nature into something unique to share with the world.

The distillery’s enduring charisma echoes the timeless allure of the nearby Black Hill, known as Knockdhu in Gaelic. It provides them with not only their name, but the source of the many springs of pure, clear water required to make the whisky. However, the brand name anCnoc (Gaelic for ‘the hill’ and pronounced ‘a-nock’) lends it the unusual distinction of not being named after the distillery which produces it.

What has remained virtually unchanged throughout the distillery’s rich history is the distillation process. Knock Hill continues to supply the pure water required, while the two copper pot stills are made to the same design as they were in 1894, their bulbous bases and tall, narrow necks giving anCnoc a light, fresh flavour similar to that first sampled more than 125 years ago.

In keeping with traditional methods, they continue to use a stainless steel mash tun, with wooden washbacks. The whisky is aged in American and Spanish oak barrels, while the thick granite walls of the dunnage warehouses make for a stable temperature – and ultimately a beautifully consistent dram with an accessible, contemporary character.
