Knock Tales - Tales from Knock

Knock Tales Whisky Podcast with Gordon Bruce

Introducing, Knock Tales a whisky podcast from our home Knockdhu Distillery, Knock - the place where Gordon Bruce works as Distillery Manager - founded in 1894. The pride and passion of Gordon and his team can be tasted in every bottle of anCnoc whisky, shipped out from this quiet Aberdeenshire spot to drinkers around the world. It’s Gordon’s dedication to traditional techniques and craft production that lie behind anCnoc’s worldwide success, along with his mantra of keeping it simple and doing things well.  

Our monthly podcast series is set to lift the lid on the passion, process and personalities that go into making some of the world’s most expertly crafted products.

Knock Tales Whisky Podcast with Gordon Bruce will hear our Distillery Manager enjoy a dram and a bit of ‘craic’ with fellow makers and craft obsessives from around the world, getting to the bottom of Gordon’s favourite topic: making things well.

Join Gordon as he fires up the mic every month at his distillery desk to chat over a dram with people who share our ethos. In each episode, Gordon will share stories and secrets from a life making whisky, with guests who also devote their day to their craft.

Tune in on the first #WhiskyWednesday of every month and join Gordon as he explores what goes into crafting products that stand the test of time, the importance of traditions versus modern ideas, machinery and tales from behind the scenes.

Listen Here.



I find it fascinating to talk to people who, like me, spend their days making things for other people to enjoy, no matter what the end product is. This podcast is all about my curiosity in them and the craft process
