Knockdhu Distillery Introduces a Trendy Whisky

Knockdhu distillery, located in the Speyside region of Scotland, has released a trendy whisky called the new anCnoc Blas Scotch. Although we all have varied taste preferences, this incredible whisky is stating a fact: this release is a collaborative project between Knockdhu and Patrick Grant (a fashion designer from Scotland) who was responsible for designing the packaging as they are making a non-age statement expression.

According to Knockdhu distillery, “Blas” means “taste” in the Gaelic language. It reflects the tastes of Grant as he spent more than a year in designing the print that you can see on the packaging with a little help from the fans of anCnoc who sent images and messages on social media that inspired the final design in many ways.

“I spent a lot of time at Knockdhu not only taking in the landscape and surrounding areas, but getting to know the people that work there and the methods that they use. Everything in the print is from the hill, the village of Knock or within the distillery itself and tells the story of the making of Blas. I’ve tried to interpret anCnoc’s history and tradition in a modern way, and hope this is translated through the aesthetic of the bottle,” says Grant.

To give you a little bit more idea on the actual whisky in the beverage, it has 54% ABV and is drawn from Scotch matured in American and Spanish oak barrels, bottled without chill-filtration and coloring. It has a sweet and fruity smell with a hint of lemon and orange peel. Its bitter chocolate and vanilla tones give it complexity and weight. Blas has a full, oily taste with an initial burst of warm lemon tart, followed by hints of rum raisins and dark chocolate. There are notes of freshly cut grass that gives balance and freshness. It has an after taste of bitter-sweet cocoa.
