Knockando Single Malt 12 Years

Foremost among the distilleries along the banks of the chill, clear waters of the Spey stands Knockando. Built by John Thompson in 1898 the Knockando distillery lies in the village of the same name, derived from the Gaelic ‘Cnoc-an-dhu,’ meaning ‘little black hill.’ 

In 1904 Knockando Distillery was purchased by W & A Gilbey's - the well known gin producers from London. Today Knockando is part of Diageo's Classic Malts Selection. 

Only natural ingredients are used - malted barley, yeast and crystal clear spring water from the Cardnach spring, which lies in the hills above the distillery. The quantity of peat used in malting the barley is carefully controlled so as not to overbalance the taste of the final product and the proportion of sherry casks used is restricted so as to not dominate the taste of the whisky. The pale, golden colour of Knockando is entirely natural. It is derived solely from the casks in which it has matured – casks held together without nails or glue. No colouring is ever added – it is for this reason that the depth of the colour in successive bottlings may vary.

Time is another key element, as gentle maturation in oak casks slowly reveal the subtle aromas: delicate with a distinctive fresh almond note in its younger versions, it gains weight and depth of flavour over the years. The final result is a subtle, fruity single malt which bears all the hall marks of the finest Speyside malts.

Although distillation continues throughout the year, each year of production is still referred to as a Season at Knockando distillery. In each bottle you will only ever find the produce of one single Season - a practice which continues to distinguish Knockando™ from almost all other single malts. Thus, when the young spirit is brought to the warehouse, the Season of distillation is marked on the end of the cask. And when it is ready to be bottled, it is duly inscribed on the bottle and the gift box together with the year of bottling.


Knockando Distillery Stills
"We tend to choose casks that are at their peak. On occasion this means that one bottle will differ subtly from another – but the distillery character remains the same". Innes Shaw, Manager, Knockando Distillery. Knockando also contributes to several malts, especially the Justerini and Brooks J&B blends. 

Food suggestion: Why not try Knockando™ poured over traditional Scottish haggis? Taste style: Smooth. Smooth malts are likely to hold more sweetness than saltiness and tend to be more creamy than dry.


Smooth, complex layers of flowery, nutty, slightly smoky notes. 

Strength: 40% ABV 

Appearance: Pale gold. 

Nose: Sweet and aromatic, with light nutty notes. 

Body: Light and smooth - a little "creamy". 

Palate: Delicate, soft and fruity with a hint of almonds. 

Finish: Smooth, toffee and creamy notes, becoming dryer.
