WhistlePig PiggyBack Rye Aged 6 Years 750mL
WhistlePig is shorthand for innovation, pushing forward and upgrading. It’s also an awesome name and a fun image to have in one’s mind. The story started in 2007 when the founding crew bought a farm in Vermont. They teamed up with Master Distiller Dave Pickerell and discovered a stock of a decade-old Canadian Whisky. They finished and bottled it at the farm and wrote the first chapter in their Whiskey-making tale. WhistlePig’s principle is taking old school approaches, adapting them to new ways, and looking for the best methods to create booze. Surrounded by goats, sheep, horses, bees, and yes, pigs, wonderful expressions emerge from the farm. Their most famous one, the 10-Year-Old even appeared in Breaking Bad.

Their latest release was born during the summer of 2018 when Master Distiller Dave returned to the farm with a wild dream: create the best aged Rye Whiskey that’s also perfect for your Rye cocktail. It’s 100% Rye with an intense spicy profile. WhistlePig PiggyBack Rye spent six years in oak barrels and became a complex and smooth delight. Go for the Don Draper classic with an Old-fashioned or make a strong New Orleanian Vieux Carré. PiggyBack will be outstanding in any concoction.
