anCnoc Brand Manager Gillian Gibson commented “It’s been wonderful to support such a dynamic selection of films at this year’s Leeds International Film Festival, as part of anCnoc’s overall arts programme. Our team have seen a great response from sampling wee drams across the city – with the enthusiastic reception at the anCnoc Single Malt Opening Gala and Film Festival Favourites a particular highlight.”  

The Leeds International Film Festival included a selection of world and UK premieres, gripping dramas, new world cinema, animation and hit comedies.  The programme culminated in the anCnoc Single Malt Film Festival Favourites event, which screened the most popular movies from the festival as voted by audiences at the Hyde Park Picturehouse. 

anCnoc, meaning “hill” in Gaelic, and pronounced “a-nock”, is carefully crafted at Knockdhu distillery in the Scottish Highlands. The malt whisky has a distinctive, fresh and contemporary identity and since its re-launch has also made a name for itself sponsoring contemporary arts venues and events across the UK and internationally.

It is a very well balanced dram; with a round and mellow nose and a sensational tasting experience that starts with a pleasant sweetness and culminates in an incredible fruitiness followed by a long smooth finish. Fully matured in a combination of American Bourbon and Spanish Sherry casks, anCnoc’s is a light yet challenging malt for every occasion.
