Lot number: 081-4902

The Highland distillery of Knockdhu was built in 1877, marking the genesis of The Distillers Company (DCL), who would later evolve into industry giant Diageo. Used almost exclusively as blending stock, It didn't become known as a single malt until (under the new ownership of Inver House) its first official expression was released onto the market in 1990.

After a short time, the rather wise decision was taken to create the brand name “anCnoc”, and while it's pronunciation may not be immediately obvious, it had the desired effect of avoiding confusion with Knockando.

The Flaughter is a spade is used to remove the top layer of peat which is richer, more rooty and produces more reek. This gives a heavier, smokier flavour to the whisky, in this case, with a PPM of 14.8.

46% ABV / 70cl

Please examine the images of the bottle, packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
