Inver House releases anCnoc 1975 Vintage

Inver House Distillers has released anCnoc 1975 Vintage. This rare Highland single malt Scotch whisky was drawn from just three casks at anCnoc’s Knockdhu Distillery in Huntly.

Only 1,590 bottles will be available in markets including the UK, US, Russia and Canada from this month with a recommended retail price of £300 per bottle. Distinguished by its amber tone, anCnoc 1975 Vintage is neither chill-filtered nor coloured and is bottled at its natural cask strength of 44.2% ABV.

The whisky, which is matured in Spanish and American oak casks, is spicy on the nose and accentuated by orange peel and green apple. To taste, the malt is full-bodied, intense and complex with notes of fruitcake, sticky toffee and seasoned leather, which leads to a long, sweet finish. 

In true anCnoc style, the bold black and silver packaging designed by Full Circle Design mirrors the contemporary design of the brand’s core range and features an illustration of the distillery on the bottle and tube. The tubes are supplied by the German manufacturer Ch. Dahlinger

Stephanie Bridge, anCnoc assistant brand manager comments: ‘The last 12 months have been a very ambitious and a very successful time for anCnoc.  We unveiled a limited edition peated collection to a global audience and launched two travel retail expressions as well as our popular 18 year old. The 1975 has been anticipated for a number of years, it’s distinctively anCnoc, a fantastic whisky and a superb addition to any whisky collection.”
