product Details

Balvenie Dipping Dog with Glass, Water Bottle and Plinth

Dipping dogs were traditionally used by distillery workers to free small amounts of whisky from casks in the warehouse while the Exciseman wasn't looking. Made from copper tubing, they were tied to the belt and kept stored down the workers trouser leg. The dog's got their name due to the insinuation that these too were a "man's best friend."

This set comes with a glass, bottle and wooden plinth.

Please note condition as shown.
