Whisky Unveils Last ‘Warehouses’ Instalment in Collaboration with Illustrator.
anCnoc Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has revealed the final design in the series of Limited Edition releases from its unique collaboration with internationally renowned Scottish illustrator, Peter Arkle. Inspired by the warehouses at Knockdhu Distillery, the striking and contemporary design is rooted in Peter’s idea that the buildings are guarding the magic – and not just the whisky – hidden inside them. He believes that anCnoc would not be anCnoc without these historic buildings and so, for the first time, they take pride of place in the design of anCnoc’s packaging. The New York-based illustrator said: ‘I have really enjoyed working with anCnoc as a collaborative partner throughout the limited edition campaign. The whole project has been inspiring and a great creative challenge, and I’m delighted with the four finished products. As with all the Peter Arkle editions, the liquid inside is as remarkable as the design. The final expression is a polished gold colour, with the scent of cut flowers and lemon meringue followed by a rich and firm-textured finish of dried fruit and caramel.
Restricted to only 1000 cases, this limited edition will be available online and through specialist retailers in the UK as well as across the globe in the USA, Germany, Russia, Japan, Taiwan and Canada.
