The new expression of Farmstock is absolutely delicious! Unmistakable sweet tones of vanilla and brown sugar envelope the nose with hints of vibrant orange peel giving it a little lift. The young whiskey produced on the farm offers a higher tonal quality balancing the longer aged whiskeys sourced from other distilleries. Its medium body gently coats the palate with flavorful tones of spice, peaches, and oak. This is not an overpowering whiskey, but one which melts gently into your senses. Grab a bottle before it sells out and you’ll be able to compare it to the third crop when that releases later in 2019!
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.
