anCnoc Whisky

AnCnoc whisky is the product of the The Knockdhu distillery, which was established in 1892 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, Morisson 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. Knockdu distillery uses traditional methods but pride themselves on making distinctly modern tasting whisky.
