WhistlePig Whiskey

WhistlePig Whiskey is located on one of the oldest farms in Vermont. Cultivation began here in the early 19th century in what was then known as the hamlet Shaksboro. WhistlePig Whiskey Steam engines replaced the lifeblood of the town – a grist and lumber mill powered by the Lemon Fair River – which still meanders through farm – and the town slowly dissipated until vanishing entirely in the 1930’s. The farm remained in operation until 2006 when it was purchased and renamed by WhistlePig’s founder Raj Peter Bhakta. WhistlePig Farm is being lovingly restored, a slow and painstaking process, in order to ensure that we produce the finest rye whiskey in the world.

WhistlePig’s Master Distiller, Dave Pickerell, a luminary in the world of whiskey, is one of the nation’s preeminent master distillers. Before joining WhistlePig, Dave spent 14 years as Maker’s Mark Master Distiller in Loretto, Kentucky. However, he has since joined the WhistlePig team in order to create what he regards as his magnum opus: WhistlePig 100% Straight Rye Whiskey. To this end, we are proud to report that our first whiskey, a 10yr old Straight Rye Whiskey, was awarded by Wine Enthusiast its”highest ever” rating for rye whiskey at 96 pts.

Where spice, sweet and rye meet, a there’s a pig making the grand introductions. It doesn’t have to toot it’s own horn or oink it’s own…well, think you’re get the idea. WhistlePig Straight Rye Whiskey is 100 % rye, 10-year old and 100 proof…are you seeing a theme here?

WHISTLE PIG BREWERYThis is the first single estate rye distillery where all the inputs are grown on this farm. The whiskey is hand selected by Dave Pickerell, who spent around 14 years a decade crafting Maker’s Mark and who we interviewed regularly in our early days of BourbonBlog.com. Businessman, TV personality from Apprentice, and Congressional Candidate, Raj Peter Bhakta, is the owner and founder of Whistle Pig Farm Distillery.
