Knockdhu Distillery does not have a visitor centre and is only open to the public by appointment
I visited Knockdhu in 2011. One of the best tours I have ever undertaken, topped off with some outstanding whiskies and a very reasonably priced bottle of one of my very favourite whiskies - anCnoc 16yo.
Knockdhu markets its malt as anCnoc, so as to avoid confusion with Knockando - reputedly at the insistence of Knockando owners Diageo (whose predecessors United Distillers sold Knockdhu to Inver House).
