COPPER DIPPING DOGS
Copper dipping dogs originated in the 1800's in Scotland.
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.
Hand forged, hammered, solid copper display brackets made to fit both small or large barrel thieves.
