Cut off during a blizzard, high in the hills of Scotland, but safe in the warmth of Braeval Distillery, sat a distiller and his dog, ‘Barrelhound’.
The snow fell, the wind howled, and losing the will to distill, the man spoke to the dog for inspiration. But the fun began when the dog spoke back!
Some say this was when the distiller lost his mind. But for others it’s when he found his imagination. The two played games, held dinner parties and nosed whiskies like never before.
With senses unleashed, they set to work blending an unconventional but charming whisky. Their genius was finishing a portion of the blend in Bourbon casks, making a delicious spirit to warm the soul.
