Sheep Dip is a blended malt woven using up to 16 single malts, primarily from the Highlands of Scotland, smoothly blended with delicate Speyside and smoky Islay malts.
But why call it Sheep Dip? Farmers have long referred to whisky as Sheep Dip. It was a way of disguising their own homemade whisky from the revenue man, they'd hide their whisky in barrels marked Sheep Dip. The excise men didn't dare sample such a patent liquid.
