"The Brand idea for Copper Dog started at the hotel, but we always had aspirations for wider distribution"
The Craigellachie Hotel in Speyside has launched a no-age-statement (NAS) blended malt Scotch whisky called Copper Dog, designed specifically for mixing.
The name ‘Copper Dog’ comes from an old device made from copper tubing with a penny soldered to one end and cork in the other, which was used by distillery workers to smuggle whisky home. It is also the name of the bar at the Craigellachie Hotel.
Blended by master blender Stuart Morrison, the whiskies included in Copper Dog have been aged in a mixture of refill American and European oak casks, first fill Bourbon casks and rejuvenated casks, before being married in hogsheads.
