Stranger concoctions have existed, but the Dog’s Nose has deep roots in the drinking world. It is said that the Dog’s Nose is referenced in the Pickwick Club, the first novel by Charles Dickens. The first issue of the novel was published in 1836 with the last in 1837. That makes the Dog’s Nose vintage indeed.
