anCnoc whisky is the product of the The Knockdhu distillery in the Highland whisky region and is matured for at least 12 years. They use time-tested, traditional methods but pride themselves on making distinctly modern tasting whisky.
The new anCnoc brand as we know it today was launched in 1994 with the release of a 12 year old expression.
They have their own podcast hosted by Gordon Bruce, called the 'Knocktales Whisky Podcast'.
Founded in 1894 by John Morrison, who had recently bought the Knock estate. With the Great North Railway close by and a spring of pure clear water running through the estate, Morrison saw a golden opportunity to build a modern distillery in the village of Knock. The name ‘AnCnoc’ came from the locals, who named the Knock Hill where the springs were found after the Gaelic for black hill – ancnoc.
