Founded by the exuberant James Allardice in 1826, GlenDronach has been creating the finest sherried single malts for nearly 200 years. Located in Forgue by Huntly, the distillery's independent ownership has allowed them the freedom to rekindle the reputation of GlenDronach as a distiller of high quality whiskies of inimitable and individual character. A reputation that has travelled worldwide - to those in the know, it's a well kept secret. Now it's your chance to find out.


At Knockdhu Distillery the methods used to make 'anCnoc' (pronounced 'a-nock') whisky have hardly changed in over 100 years, and it's these traditional techniques that help to create it's distinctive, modern flavour. Bottled as 'anCnoc', this unique single malt has a mind of its own. The name originates from the Gaelic for 'Knock Hill' where the distillery water flows from one of it's springs. It's one of our most popular destinations and you'll understand why from the moment you set eyes on Knockdhu.
