This jig has different other names like Drops of Whiskey, New Drops of Brandy, Oh Mary Take My Advice, etc.
It is part of the Irish repertoire as a slip jig, but also of the English (Northumberland) and Scottish ones.
A Scottish jig from 17th century, Hey My Nanny, is known to have inspired this Drops Of Brandy.

It is essentially played in Scottish Country Dance (Strip The Willow) : the dance is then named Drops Of Brandy.

I've chosen a beat closed to the one of the dance which is a bit lower than for a Scottish jig on bagpipe.
