The Push

Copper Dog was created in the pub... Born of an idea between mates and distillers, Copper Dog blends the great qualities of eight fine single malts creating a deliciously smooth and fruity Scotch. The best way to taste it? Just as the resourceful rascals of Speyside did, the distillery workers who fashioned ‘Copper Dogs’ out of scraps of metal and pennies so they could smuggle out the Scotch they made to enjoy with their friends and family.

Everyone should have the opportunity to come together and enjoy great Scotch - head to The Push for a Copper Dog cocktail, live music from 5pm plus Copper Dog bandanas & Copper Dog dippers up for grabs throughout festival. Bring your banter, your mates... and your dog!
