Winning bid: £100.00
Lot number: 081-4655

Founded by John Thomson in 1896, Knockando distillery owns the sole rights to tap the Cardnach spring before it reaches the Spey. In 1904, the distillery was purchased by London gin giants, W&A Gilbey, who utilised Knockando’s pale, golden coloured malt in their signature blend, J&B.

Loosely translated from the Gaelic for ‘little black hill’, Knockando’s distillery, which is simply named after the Moray town it is located in, is now best known for producing Diaego’s fifth best selling malt in France and Spain. These light, Speyside whiskies quirkily declare both the vintage and the age on their bottling.

Distilled: 1978

Bottled: 1992

43% ABV / 1Litre
