anCnoc releases limited edition Vintage 2000

Inver House Distillers, part of International Beverage Holdings, has announced an addition to its portfolio of Scotch whiskies: anCnoc Highland single malt Vintage 2000. Only 1,000 cases will be available globaly with a RRP of £55 per bottle.

The whisky has matured in Spanish oak ex-sherry butts and American oak ex-bourbon barrels at Knockdhu Distillery in Knock, Banffshire, and has been bottled in its most natural form – neither chill-filtered nor coloured at 46% ABV. The Vintage liquid is bronzed honey in colour with rich amber highlights and a hint of oriental spices on the nose. To taste, the expression is smooth and creamy with a balanced finish.

Staying true to anCnoc style, the packaging of this stylish single malt mirrors the minimalist design of anCnoc’s core range and features the contemporary yet traditional illustration of the Knockdhu Distillery.

anCnoc is a brand closely associated with the arts and renowned the world over by malt enthusiasts for bringing a modern twist to the traditions of fine whisky, producing a single malt that is accessible and versatile for all occasions.The brand recently launched its peated collection earlier this year with four expressions of varying peat strength - aiming to help drinkers find a dram to suit their palate and to ‘shine a light’ on the dark, enigmatic world of peat.

anCnoc assistant brand manager, Stephanie Bridge comments: "The unique taste portfolio of the vintage 2000 is set to be a hit with malt enthusiasts everywhere.Releasing the next vintage in the anCnoc collection marks the end of a very exciting spring and summer for the brand. I’m confident that the exclusive expression will be a welcome addition to anyone’s malt collection."
