WhistlePig began when we purchased our farm in 2007. After a few years of deep consideration and personal reflection we committed ourselves to crafting the world’s finest and most interesting Rye Whiskeys. With help from Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, we discovered and purchased an incredible stock of 10 year old blending Whiskey in Canada that was being profoundly misused. That initial stock, for which we are forever grateful, is what kicked off our grand adventure. At WhistlePig, we believe Rye is the greatest distilled spirit for many reasons. Chief among these is our eagerness for a challenge. Rye is difficult to distil. It requires dedication, patience and precision, and - like a great Bordeaux - Rye is truly at its finest when given time to mature. Layer upon layer of flavour unveiling over time, only getting better with age. If it was easy, anybody would do it. But with Rye, the time and effort is worth the exquisite reward.
