June 6, 2013
– anCnoc Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky announced the third release in its Peter Arkle’s series, “Bricks.” In the spirit of the brands “modern tradition,” anCnoc has teamed up with renowned illustrator Peter Arkle to produce a series of Limited Edition releases, each celebrating a unique aspect of the whisky. The latest version offers striking and distinctive packaging that is inspired by the brick walls of anCnoc’s Knockdhu Distillery, which first opened in 1894.
As an avid whiskey lover himself, Peter Arkle explains, “I have loved working with anCnoc and am very proud of our latest limited edition. The distillery at Knockdhu is such a great place and I had a fantastic time visiting there. This particular illustration for me really shows the heart and history behind the distinguished taste of the brand.”
Hand selected by Distillery Manager, Gordon Bruce, “Bricks” has signature honey and lemon notes with a spicy taste of citrus, sherry and dark chocolate. Strictly limited to only 1,000 cases worldwide, “Bricks” is available beginning July 1st at specialist retailers.
The first edition in the limited design collection was matured entirely in Spanish sherry casks, in which Peter visually captured all of anCnoc’s ingredients within the package design. While the second collaboration focuses more on the spirituality that he found amongst the rows of dusty casks within the warehouses.
To celebrate this unique collaboration, anCnoc is offering 10 fans the chance to win a personally illustrated bottle through an exclusive #youranCnoc Twitter contest. On June 17th, Twitter users around the world are invited to tweet a photo of their ideal way to enjoy a glass of anCnoc.
