Look What We Found: a Beautiful Bottle of Scotch

One of the reasons I'm so drawn to drinking bourbon, whiskey, and scotch, besides the complexity of the spirit, is the story behind the label. Many brands started as a family business hundreds of years ago, and you can seriously taste that love in every sip. Younger companies may not have the history, but their stories never disappoint. I've recently read about a group of guys who pooled together a few years ago to start their own distillery, and a man who traveled the world looking for the right ingredients for his spirit.

For anCnoc (pronounced a-nock), a Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky tucked in the north east corner of Scotland, there is also a story literally about the label. As you can see, the packing is out-of-this-world stunning, sure to match the taste of a Scotch heavy with awards.

Peter Arkle has created a series of limited designs for the anCnoc bottle and case that you must get your hands on before it's too late. We all know that there is an art in the process of making Scotch Whisky, and now there is art on the bottle itself.

When you have a moment, click here to read about how Arkle arrived at his designs and then think about whether you want to order one of these for your wall...or your bar.
