AN CNOC Peat 125ème Anniversaire 46%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 56692
This limited-edition whisky has been released to mark the 125th anniversary of Knockdhu Distillery and the spirit of our founder, John Morrison. The Knockdhu Distillery, established in 1894 and one of the smallest and most enchanting in the Scottish Highlands, nestles quietly in the shadow of the mysterious Black Hill. A distillery like no other, traditional production methods are used to craft a curiously modern Single Malt. Proudly named anCnoc, meaning simply ‘the hill’ in Gaelic, every drop of this remarkable Scotch Whisky celebrates its Highland home. Our history, 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.
The Peat is an intriguing, mellow journey from the heart of Banffshire’s rich peatlands, matured in American oak ex-bourbon casks then further matured in Spanish oak butts. The sunset gold liquid has characteristic notes of almonds and dried fruit. A stunning smoky, sweet dram.

- The brand
This distillery uses a variety of casks - butts and hogsheads in Spanish oak and barrels and hogsheads in American oak - to produce a light, but complex, whisky. Both modern and classic, An Cnoc’s official bottling stands out on the one hand for its extremely distinctive packaging - see the Peter Arckle vintages, the labels and tubes of which have been created by the artist of the same name - and on the other hand for the alcohol content which is often higher than average, as well as for its numerous dated vintages. A forward-thinking whisky with deep respect for tradition!
Built on the Knock estate in 1892, following the discovery of several sources of very pure, fresh water springs, the Knockdhu distillery continues to produce a single malt from the two original stills. In 2000, the owners of the distillery decided to change the name of their whisky, in order to avoid any confusion with another distillery in the same area, Knockando. The distillery uses a variety of casks – Spanish oak butts and hogsheads, and American oak barrels and hogsheads – to produce a light, but complex style of whisky.
