I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.
Sheepdog Peanut Butter Whiskey hit Australian stores in 2021 after gaining a following in the UK and USA. The alcohol content of 35% is less than the usual 40% plus for whiskey and makes for a smoother, less potent drink. It pays to be aware that the aroma of nuts and vanilla and the accompanying flavours of caramel and butterscotch encourage increased consumption.
It is delicious served straight from the freezer or on the rocks but the possibilities for the use of Sheep Dog Whiskey are endless. For example, you can enhance a Sheepdog shot with a glass edged in peanut butter and crushed nuts or add it to an espresso martini or non-Irish coffee. A scoop of vanilla ice cream drowned in hot espresso, topped with a shot of Sheepdog Whiskey is a tasty twist on an affogato or you can make an adult PB&J sundae with ice cream, nuts, Sheepdog Whiskey and a berry coulis.
The whiskey is made with real peanut flavouring but the allergen containing proteins have been removed by a special process. Hence Peanut Butter Whiskey is allergen-free and safe for consumers but may be produced on the same lines in facilities containing allergens including milk, peanuts, tree nuts and wheat.
