The story of WhistlePig begins in 2007, with Raj Peter Bhakta buying a farm in Shoreham, Vermont, with the idea of creating some ace rye whiskey. Teaming up with Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, who was the Master Distiller at Maker’s Mark for 14 years, WhistlePig sourced a top quality, 100% rye whiskey from Canada, then finished and bottled it at the WhistlePig farm. The WhistlePig chaps are also growing their own rye grain on the farm and started distillation on the 4th of July, 2015.

One of the oldest whiskeys ever bottled by WhistlePig is also their first products finished in Vermont Estate Oak. Harvested right off the farm, the wood has more rings than the standard American oak used in whiskey barrels. That gives it more opportunity to impart deeper flavours during maturation. Hitting the bottle at 92-proof, the liquid is assertive and wise beyond its 15 year age statement.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Deep and rich, dominated by caramel, vanilla, and oak with hints of allspice and burnt orange.

Palate: Warm, rich, and slightly creamy. Loads of butterscotch and baking spice with leather and a hint of tobacco.

Finish: Ultra long and rich, warm, and inviting.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
