■About Whistle Pig
A rye whiskey brand that has won numerous awards around the world and was founded in 2007 by a team led by legendary master distiller Dave Pickerell who bet on the potential of rye whisky. Whistle Pig’s philosophy of preserving the beauty of rye whisky, eliminating waste, and continuing to innovate to create even more delicious whisky, continues to be carefully protected. At our idyllic 500-acre farm in Shoreham, Vermont, we have researched blending and additional aging to create a portfolio of complex, deep-tasting rye whiskies. Its evolution knows no bounds. In 2017, it won the title of Best Whiskey (Best in Show) at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, which boasts the largest number of exhibitors in the United States, and has attracted attention from all over the world.
