Sheep Dip Islay

Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Sheep Dip Islay Blended Malt Scotch is the second blended malt offering from the Sheep Dip brand, made from a blend of several Islay single malts. It has a smokier character than Sheep Dip Original, which is characteristic of Islay's heavily-peated style.

Sheep Dip takes its name from the probably-apocryphal legend that Scottish distillers used to hide their illegal whiskey from the tax man in barrels humorously labeled "sheep dip" (an antiparasitic and antifungal solution used to keep a sheep's wool healthy). It makes for a great story and a great label that have brought the brand a good deal of international fame.
