Sheep Dip

Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Sheep Dip Blended Malt Scotch is one of the few blended malts available on the market today (along with brands like Monkey Shoulder), but the category is becoming more popular every year as distillers look to branch out from the standard single malt-blended scotch dichotomy. Sheep Dip is a blend of 16 Highland single malt scotch whiskies, aged between 8 and 21 years in first-fill barrels.

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.
