AnCnoc Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has today (10 September) unveiled the second in the series of Limited Edition releases from its collaboration with internationally renowned Scottish illustrator, Peter Arkle.

The partnership launched in April this year, and has seen Arkle develop an exclusive range of limited edition designs for anCnoc; each based on a particular aspect of Knockdhu Distillery, home of the single malt in Huntly, Aberdeenshire.

AnCnoc’s eagerly anticipated new edition is inspired by Arkle’s visit to the distillery’s warehouse, where the whisky is aged. Arkle found this tranquil, dark space to have an enchanting atmosphere – almost magical –with “an incredible sense of time passing”. This is conveyed in his evocative black and white illustration on the bottle, showing rows of casks disappearing into the darkness.
