In 2012 anCnoc teamed up with Scots born illustrator Peter Arkle to launch a series of Limited Edition whiskies. Now living in New York Peter refers to anCnoc as 'remarkable liquid' and enjoys its 'magic' so it seemed fitting that he should work on producing the packaging for our Collection.
Not only was each tube and label design inspired by Peter's visit to our Knockdhu Distillery and depicts a unique aspect of our process, the liquid inside each bottle was equally as special. The warehouses at Knockdhu have been guarding the secret magic that is happening inside them for many years. They don't just protect the liquid while it matures but actually add to that maturation process. anCnoc would not be anCnoc without these buildings.
This dram has top notes of cut flowers and lemon meringue. It opens up to honey sweetness, creamy vanilla and a touch of sherry spice.

In 1824, Dr. Johann Siegart, a German doctor serving as Surgeon-General of Simon Bolivar's army in Venezuela, was working to find a medicine that would enhance the appetite and digestive well-being of his soldiers. Dr. Siegart eventually settled upon a mix of herbs and spices that he called ?Amargo Aromatico? ? today, this world-famous concoction is known simply as Angostura Bitters.
"A cocktail cabinet without Angostura is like a kitchen without salt and pepper." ANGOSTURA? aromatic bitters adds a layer of complexity, intensifies the flavor of other ingredients, counteracts the harshness of acidic contents and decreases the harshness of spirits. But it doesn?t stop there ? it also helps cleanse the palate and aid in digestion. Ever had an Old Fashioned, Manhattan, Pink Gin or Mai Tai? Then you?ve experienced ANGOSTURA? aromatic bitters. It's the can?t-miss bottle behind the bar, featuring an over-sized label and distinct yellow cap.?
