June 2012

An Cnoc launches the Peter Arkle Limited Edition: the scottish born artist has developed a range
of limited edition designs which will be launched throughout 2012.

The first release is based on a depiction of the ingredients malted barley, spring water, heat, yeast,
time and magic ; the secret thing which makes An Cnoc An Cnoc.

This whisky is a new expression, selected by distillery manager Gordon Bruce and matured in Spanish
sherry butts.

1000 cases of the first Peter Arkle Limited Edition will be released.

Pronounced"( a - nock)

The Tushkar spade has a long blade that cuts down through the peat, producing
a turf with a medium to slow burn. This peat creates and adds a complex but
medium smokiness to the whisky, in this case with a PPM of 15.0.

INVER House Distillers has teamed up with an Edinburgh-born fashion designer to help create a limited-edition tipple set to go on sale next February
Patrick Grant, the creative director of Savile Row tailor Norton & Sons and luxury menswear label E.Tautz, is joining forces with anCnoc Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky to create the product's packaging.
Also a judge on BBC2's The Great British Sewing Bee, Grant's contribution extends to helping taste and profile the special-edition spirit.
His design will include a bespoke print inspired by the brand, the liquid's flavour notes, and the Knockdhu distillery production methods. When creating his final print designs he will also use input from the public, who can suggest what they think embodies anCnoc on social media using the hashtag #ModernTradition.
Grant - menswear designer of the year in 2010 and recipient of the BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund 2015 - said: "Growing up in Scotland, and as big fan of anCnoc whiskies, it's a stroke of fate that led me to partner with them on this exciting project. I saw lots of parallels with my work and the masterful production methods used at the distillery - from provenance and heritage to craftsmanship and tradition but with a contemporary edge."


Inver House Distillers has introduced an eco - friendly way of stripping
copper residues from the spent less (the residue left in the spirit after
distillation ) by pumping it into a wetland area containing 17 species
of copper neutralizing .

This means there is no need to transport the spent lees to a waste
treatment fa.cility, saving 8 - 10 tanker trips each week.

An Cnoc is one of the only few distilleries to retain traditional worm
tubes for condensing the alcohol vapour.

Those at An Cnoc are unique because they allow both the spirit and wash worm
to share the same cooling tube.

Ever willing to stand out from the crowd, anCnoc's
distinctive personality is captured at its best in this
exceptional Limited Edition release. With just three
casks made available for bottling, this is a whisky
created to mingle effortlessly among elite single malts.

Of course, bringing such a special single malt to life
is far from effortless. AnCnoc Vintage 1975 owes its
intens yet inviting flavours to the time honoured
production methods employed at our Knockdhu
Distillery, where it has matured in Spanish and
American oak casks for decades. While instilled
with a rich and captivating complexity, it retains
the accessible, contemporary character found in
all anCnoc expressions.

Distinguised by his attractive amber tone, anCnoc
Vintage 1975 is neither chill filtered nor coloured
and is bottled at his natural cask strenght. A vibrant
embodiment of anCnoc's renowed excellence, its
rarity lends it both an enticing allure and a timeless

Tasting Notes
Colour Ebony with amber highlights.
Nose Rich and inviting. Waves of spicy dried fruit and
creamy vanille sweetness are accentuated by orange
peel, green apple freshness and just a hint of cut flowers.
Taste Full - bodied, intense and complex. Fruit cake,
sticky toffee and seasoned leather are followed by
signature notes of honey and lemons, leading eventually
to a long, mouth watering finish full of spice and sweetness.
