About this Little Brown Dog release

The little brother of Little Brown Dog's well-loved Wee Mongrel. Blended Scotch whisky from two sherry butts with a high malt content. Andrew and Chris have called it drookit dug because the ABV has dropped a fair bit in a short time, it’s still cask strength but at the very approachable ABV of 43.6%

This is just good honest sherried whisky. The kind of bottle to share with family or a few mates over a good old chin wag and a catch up. A cask strength session dram, as it were.

These butts were filled in 2011 with the same blend of Scotch whiskies, and just mixed together for bottling.

Low ABV, heavy breathing, casks tend to be excellent whisky. Rather than achieving a reduction in ABV by dilution, casks that drop like this on their own have a great texture with no dilution of flavour and greater maturity.

Meet The Founders

Dr Andrew Smith and Chris Reid

Little Brown Dog Spirits was founded by Dr Andrew Smith and Chris Reid. They run an independent bottler and micro-distillery based in rural Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

They take their name from Andrew’s beloved dog, whose nickname was the little brown dog. She followed him everywhere on all his distillery visits and was his constant companion. She passed away in 2022 aged 15 but lives on in spirit. Two more little brown dogs, Winnie and Peedie joined the team in 2020 and 2023.

Chris and Andrew started Little Brown Dog in 2018. Based on Chris’s farm they combine a passion for their surrounding area with in-depth knowledge (read intense geekery!) of distilling and cask maturation.
