anCnoc unveils first ever creative collaboration with a fashion designer
Posted on September 03, 2015
Following a series of teasers on social media and speculation from excited fans we are delighted to reveal that we are embarking on a rather exciting partnership with award-winning fashion designer Patrick Grant. The Edinburgh-born designer is the creative director of bespoke tailors Norton and Sons of Savile Row, founder of Ready to Wear label E-Tautz & Sons, and perhaps best known by the public for his role as a judge on BBC2’s The Great British Sewing Bee.
Patrick’s wealth of creative experience will be harnessed as he works with anCnoc to craft a bespoke print which will draw inspiration from our single malt’s heritage, character, and indeed the time-honoured production methods used here at Knockdhu distillery. The print will debut in February 2016 when we reveal an exceptionally Limited Edition single malt expression which utilises the design on both the bottle and packaging, not to mention that a small number of exclusive fashion items including this unique print will also be produced.
In anticipation of next year’s launch Patrick has now started work on the print and is reaching out to you, our fans, to contribute to the final result. What’s more anyone that tweets or posts inspiration for his design on Facebook will be placed in a prize draw to win one of 5 goodies bags (worth over £100 each!). So what are you waiting for!
