Knockdhu

(Nok-DOO)

The proprietors of the Knockdhu (Est 1893 in Huntley, Aberdeenshire) distillery have managed to confuse their customers by repeatedly switching between the brand names 'An Cnoc' and 'Knockdhu' so at the turn of the millennium the name of the official bottlings had reverted to the old name they used around the year 1990, Knockdhu. And then, in 2003, they redesigned their 12yo standard official bottling and changed the name back to 'An Cnoc' yet again to avoid being confused with Speyside distillery Knockando.  After the re-launch a number of limited releases and vintages were introduced as well. The name Knockdhu means 'black hill' - while the name of the An Cnoc whisky just means 'the hill'.  The Knockdhu distillery used to produce only unpeated whisky, but these days part of the spirit that is produced at Knockdhu is peated in character - although it is relatively mildly peated (around 20 PPM)
