In years long-past, the colourful characters grafting in Scottish distilleries would help themselves to a dram using a Copper Dog; a pipe hidden inside the leg of their trousers. They would fashion their own vessels with scraps of metal from the cooperage, soldering a penny on one end and keeping the dram safe at the other with a cork. A chain attached to belt or braces would make sure the whisky was kept on a tight leash.
Copper Dog is a tribute to those Speyside rascals whose legacy inspired our unique blend of no fewer than eight single malts
Copper Dog is an award winning whisky from the heart of Speyside, Scotland. Our liquid is a unique blend of no fewer than eight single malt whiskies, slowly married together in old oak casks. It’s a smooth Scotch, with ripe fruit aromas, and a delicate, spicy finish. Crisp apple to zesty citrus, dried fruit and vanilla. Craftily combined together resulting in a whisky that’s simple enough to be approachable, but complex enough to keep up with the conversation.

"I’m naturally biased, but do see Scotch as the greatest of all spirits. For me, what makes a good whisky is one that is simple enough to be approachable, but complex enough to deal with whatever it ends up alongside in a glass. What we have in Copper Dog is a whisky that has this resilience and versatility."
