The Whisky

anCnoc

The Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky anCnoc has been produced since 1894 at Knockdhu Distillery

Tasting Notes: “A soft Whisky, with notes of Lemon and Honey, You don’t get as big of a kick when drinking this Whisky, it’s ideal for anyone just getting into Whisky.”

Burns Night

On January 25th, people around the world celebrate the birthday of Scotland’s most revered poet, Robert Burns. Paying homage to his memory with a series of boozy toasts, single malt whisky has forever been the drink of choice to commemorate the anniversary of Scotland’s most famous son.

The Cocktails

We paired Champagne Faniel et Fils and anCnoc together with some other cocktail ingredients to create three different cocktails to enjoy!

First Cocktail: Champagne, Whisky and Chambord

Second Cocktail: Champagne, Whisky, Maple Syrup and Lemon Juice

Third Cocktail: Champagne, Whisky and Orange Juice

Tasting Notes

First Cocktail Tasting Notes: “Easy to drink Cocktail with each of the three ingredients expressing themselves, a fairly quick fade in the palate.”

Second Cocktail Tasting Notes: “I get a warm taste feeling with this cocktail, initial Whisky burst followed by crisp Champagne flavours softened by the Maple Syrup.”

Third Cocktail Tasting Notes: “The sharp orange flavours hit the mouth first with the anCnoc and Champagne spectating in the background.”
