Knockando is the flagship distillery of I.D.V./Justerini & Brooks and produces a malt whisky. The whisky is marketed as a single malt under its season of distillation; the year of bottling is also indicated on the label. The notion is that the whisky is bottled when it is mature, rather than at a specific age.
It was built in 1898 by J. Thompson Esq., spirit broker of Elgin but closed two
years later and was bought in 1904 by
W & A Gilbey's. It was partially rebuilt
in 1969 and added a second pair of stills. It obtains most of its peat from
the Black Isle or East Lothian and produces 1.9 million litres AV per annum.
