Also known as "Copper Dipping Dogs", distillery workers crafted dipping dogs to lower into casks to steal whiskey. The dipping dog, attached to a chain and secured to the workers' belts was concealed in their pant legs. The thieves could then easily take a drink on the job or sneak it out! Attached to a chain, always by one's side, and man's best friend-hence the name, dipping dog. Handcrafted with sterling silver welds, our fully functional dipping dogs are perfect for any whiskey enthusiast.
