Copper Dog is a Scotch whisky which sums up all that is good about Speyside. A combination of eight Speyside single malts, Copper Dog is deliciously fruity with a hint of honey and spice.

Each featured Front Liner receives a personalised Copper Dog bottle and dipper from the brand’s home in Speyside. Additionally, Copper Dog will host a grand prize draw in late 2018 featuring the previous 12 months’ nominated staff. One lucky Front Liner will win a VIP all-expenses-paid trip to Scotland, staying at the brand’s superb Craigellachie Hotel in Speyside, Scotland.
