When John Morrison bought the Knock estate from the Duke of Fife in 1892, he wanted his investment to pay its way.
The discovery of several springs of pure, clear water on the southern slopes of Knock Hill let him do just that. The location, close to the Great North of Scotland railway line in the peat and barley-rich region of Moray, was perfect for distilling whisky. Production began in October 1894, and the Knockdhu dram was born.
Today little has changed at Knockdhu, the quality of the distillate continues to be the signature; fresh and fruity, and this in combination with hand selected casks, delivers a perfectly balanced Single Malt.
Gordon Bruce, the Knockdhu Distillery Manager, and the seven men of Knock, continue to ensure tradition and craftmanship in the production of anCnoc Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, at one of the smallest, and by far most enchanting distilleries in Scotland.
