Sheep Dip Blended Malt Whisky
Sheep Dip is a small batch, handcrafted, premium blended malt Scotch whisky. It marries together single malt whiskies from around Scotland in an enigmatically refined blend that packs plenty of punch.
Inspired by a long history of entrepreneurial Scottish farmers
taking distillation into their own hands, this rich and fruity
blended malt whisky pays homage to an era were these illicit
spirits traded hands across Scotland, via farmers merchants
from the Islands to Speyside. Where quality and community
came before the exciseman, and where a barrel of “SHEEP DIP”
held liquid-gold for those select few who knew where to look.
In a world filled with conventions and rules, it had to bend a couple to make it easier for all to enjoy a good whisky in a time when good whisky was a luxury.
Inspired by the illicit distilling practiced by farmers of old, it marries together single malt whiskies from around Scotland in an enigmatically refined blend that packs plenty of punch.
Sheep Dip whisky harks back to an era when farmers distilled their own 'homemade' whisky and hid it in barrels marks 'sheep dip' to avoid paying tax to the revenue man.
Farmers' merchants continued the rule bending tradition by entering cases of whisky as 'sheep dip' on the farmers' bills, continuing to 'pull-the wool' over the eyes of the tax man.
Enjoy Sheep Dip neat, with a splash of water or over ice. This whisky also mixes beautifully and makes a fine cocktail ingredient.
Balanced and fruity, citrus with botanical notes and ground spice.
Rich and malty, toffee then fruitiness and to the fore with gentle peat spoke adding depth.
