Knockdhu

Posted 28 March 2018

The recently released Peatheart is the first peated expression to join the distillery’s core range of ‘AnCnoc’ range of whiskies. That’s not to say that this Knockdhu’s first ever peated whisky, far from it – over the last four years, there has been at least 9 limited edition peaty AnCnoc’s all of which have drawn their names and visual identities from the tools used to gathering peat (The ones that I’m aware of: Cutter, Flaughter, Rascan, Rudhan, Rutter, Stack, Tushkar and Peatlands). But, now Peatlands is here to provide the AnCnoc range with a permanent peaty home.

The Ancnoc brand is not nearly as long-lived as the distillery is harks from. Knockdhu  was built in 1894, close to Knock Station to take advantage of the Banff branch of the Great North Scotland Railway. It was also conveniently located close to sources of both barely and peat. But, in 1989, current owners – Inver House – decided that the name of the distillery was too similar to that of another Speyside producer, namely Knockando and thus Ancnoc (meaning Black Hill) was selected as the brand to represent the whisky produced at Knockdhu ,with the first bottling under the new name being released in 1993.
