The distillery known as Knockdhu (not Knockando)
was founded in 1894 and is located about seven miles north
of Huntly. The name change, so as to ensure no confusion with
Knockando, another well-known Highland distillery, was made
in 1989. The first single malt by the name "AN CNOC" became
available the following year in 1990. The two original stills
that were installed in 1894 are still utilized today. It is
possible to see single malts by both names on the shelves
of some of the better stocked liquor establishments.
