anCnoc translates from Gaelic as 'the hill', and 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 high necks giving anCnoc a light, fresh flavour. This 'modern tradition' is reflected in anCnoc's contemporary bottle design and packaging and long term backing of the contemporary arts. anCnoc is a brand that is not afraid to innovate and push the boundaries with ground breaking new product launches.

The anCnoc 18 Year Old has matured in Spanish oak ex-sherry casks and American oak ex-bourbon barrels and has been bottled in its most natural form, neither chill-filtered nor coloured. As a result this dram may develop a light haze with the addition of water or if kept at a cold temperature. This haze is a natural characteristic of whisky that is non chill-filtered. 46% ABV

anCnoc is a rather curious whisky. It comes from the Knockdhu Distillery in the Scottish Highlands, a place where traditional production methods are used to craft a refreshingly modern single malt, light and elegant.
But give it time, more than three decades’ worth in fact, and this crisp, fresh whisky becomes lush and complex, bursting with personality.
Filled with our charismatic spirit back when flared jeans were all the rage, hand-picked American oak casks aged quietly in our warehouses to eventually bring us a whisky like no other. Rich and opulent but with exactly the vibrancy and balance you’d expect from anCnoc, the single malt of Modern Tradition. The family resemblance to our younger expressions is intact, distillery character shining brighter than ever. 41% ABV
The Rascan tool is used to break up the top level of rough ground and prepare the land for peat harvesting. It clears the heather turf to expose the peat used to produce a whisky, in this case, with a PPM (pars per million) of 11.1. 46% ABV
