Ancnoc 12 Years, pronounced as A-Nock, is a distinguished Highland Single Malt Scotch whisky originating from the Knockdhu Distillery. Founded by John Morrison in 1894, the Knockdhu Distillery found its home in Banffshire. John Morrison saw an opportunity to transform the natural riches of the area into something extraordinary, sharing it with the world. The site featured vast expanses of lush green fields, abundant peat and barley, and crystal-clear springs flowing down from the hills, all conveniently close to the Great North of Scotland Railway line. (Note: It should not be confused with Knockando Distillery).
