In 1892 John Morrison bought the Knock estate. When springs of pure, clear water were found, he saw a golden opportunity and the Knockdhu Distillery opened its doors in October 1894. It was regarded as the perfect embodiment of a modern distillery, something that it's been ever since. The name itself (pronounced 'a-nock')
is Gaelic for the nearby Knock Hill.

To create anCnoc, they still use their original style copper pot stills and worm tubs to condense the vaporised alcohol. It's these traditional techniques which help to create the distinctive, modern flavour.

The whisky is aged in American and Spanish oak barrels and the casks are rested quietly in traditional dunnage warehouses; it's a simple process but one which demands perfection.

Thankfully, the Distillery Manager, Gordon Bruce, and the 'Men of Knock' are perfectly suited to this task. They are dedicated, skilled and proud to be one of the smallest distillery work forces in Scotland.
