WhistlePig 'Farmstock' Rye

$99.95

The lighter notes of the young rye really show through on the nose with rye spice, fruit and oak. The palate finds a nice mix of young and old with deeper oak tones, vanilla and a bit of richness that’s highlighted by the brightness the younger rye offers. This finishes smooth and supple.

Whistle Pig represents everything we're looking for in a great whiskey; rarity, pedigree, and a great story. Located on one of the oldest farms in Vermont dating back to the early 19th-Century, this 500-acre property was once a thriving epicenter for grist and lumber. The farm remained in operation until 2006, when it was purchased by founder Raj Peter Bhakta and transformed into a rye farm and distillery. Bhakta's plan was to create a single estate rye whiskey that would stand as a model for fully sustainable agriculture in the US. A lofty goal that would require the help Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, who after a long career with Maker's Mark wanted to create his magnum opus. This combination of passion, experience, and just the right amount of insanity proved the perfect combination for driving success.
