WhistlePig Straight Rye 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. 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.

Excellent Rye
Not a Bourbon strictly speaking as it's not made in Kentucky and not from corn. This is an excellent Rye made in Vermont. Definitely one of the best rye whiskeys I've ever tasted and certainly head and shoulders above many that come from Canada.
