Discover the Knockando Whisky Range

"In each bottle of Knockando whisky you will only ever find the produce of a single season, or year of production – a practice which continues to distinguish this delicate Speyside whisky from almost all other single malts."


Built by John Thompson in 1898, the Knockando distillery sits proudly overlooking the River Spey in the village of the same name. Derived from the Gaelic ‘Cnoc-an-dhu’ meaning ‘little black hill’, the distillery was founded during the Victorian whisky boom in 1898, but fell foul of dodgy distributors – closing in 1899 after just a year of production. W & A Gilbey soon took over, marking a change of fortunes for the distillery and for lovers of whisky everywhere.
