Peaty distillery dog

Following on from Competition 1, it’s time to offer a little more detail on the second competition we’re running whilst on Islay. Let me introduce you to ‘Peaty’, our bold and feisty little friend. He’s also a toy dog.

Peaty’s hero is Shortie, the Ardbeg distillery dog, but he loves all Islay whisky equally and when we take him to visit the distilleries he often doesn’t want to leave! If you find him on your travels between 24th May and 2nd June, we’re offering a reward for his safe return to the Malt Mobile – a full 50cl bottle of our brand new That Boutique-y Whisky Company Caol Ila, worth £54.95! One good deed deserves another, after all.

Like these chaps, Peaty seems to move pretty quickly when we’re not looking.


The adorable little fella is easy to spot as he’s wearing people clothes. A T-shirt to be precise, one that says “Master of Malt” on it (that’s us!). If you do find him, please contact us on twitter @MasterOfMalt as we’ll be getting sick with worry!

Much more handsome than a mere collar.

WIN: Caol Ila – Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company) 50cl


We’re especially concerned about little Peaty this year as some strange deer have been spotted off the coast near Caol Ila…

Are they… getting nearer?
