About this Chapter 7 whisky

Knockdhu distillery malts are released under the AnCnoc brand. This is the first time Chapter 7 has released a Knockdhu single cask release, and this is indeed a very special cask. Peat is prominent in the first 10-12 years of a malt's life. It then evolves into rustic notes as it ages and retires into the background. This cask is a great example of evolved peat.

Meet The Founder

Selim Evin

Selim Evin's love affair with whisky began as a teenager when he accompanied his grandfather on a trip to Scotland. Visiting various distilleries, he was fascinated by both the art of whisky making and the stories behind the whiskies. This early experience left an indelible mark on him, igniting a passion that would later earn him the nickname "Malt Chaser."

In 2013, he made the bold decision to leave a successful business behind and pursue his true calling. He founded Chapter 7, an independent bottler that combined his passion for whisky with his love for literature. The name "Chapter 7" was inspired by the seven ages of man from Shakespeare's works. It symbolises the stages of life that whisky goes through, each stage telling a different story.

Selim's curiosity, commitment to quality, and pursuit of unique whiskies shine through all his whiskies.
