Ancnoc malt whiskyAnCnoc - the whisky formally known as Knockdhu - have launched a series of podcasts highlighting the brand .
anCnoc has broken new ground in the world of single malt whisky with the launch of the anCnoc podcast - or as we like to call it, the anCnocast. To celebrate we're offering you the chance to win your very own personalised 30GB iPod.

Whether you're a whisky connoisseur or if you just want to find out about anCnoc, then the anCnocast is the perfect way to help you unlock the secrets of this magical malt at the touch of a button.

The anCnocast gives you a unique chance to hear from leading experts in the industry, with world-renowned whisky writer Jim Murray providing an in-depth tutored anCnoc tasting, while master blender Stuart Harvey is also on hand with a fascinating and humorous history of how anCnoc came to be the exceptional whisky it is today.

And if you thought malts weren't for mixing then think again - the anCnocast provides a lively lesson on how to create a host of contemporary cocktails with anCnoc at their heart.

The AnCnoc podcasts number four so far covering the history of the distiller, mixing the malt for cocktails and a malt tasting with expert Jim Murray.

Tied in with these is a competition to win a 30GB iPod for which a prize code is required, found on competition branded bottles.

In order to avoid confusion with a similarly named Knockando, the decision was made in 2000 to change the brand name to anCnoc, pronounced a-nock. A Gaelic word meaning 'the hill'. Thus giving Ancnoc the distinction of not being named after the distillery which produces it
