Named after a device used to sneak whisky from the cask to smuggle home, Copper Dog has that same irreverent, cheeky spirit without losing the classic Speyside tradition. It was created by master blender Stuart Morrison as a tribute to all distillery workers, and has its roots in The Craigellachie Hotel, located in the heart of Speyside whisky country.
