Introducing the next chapter of the Flaviar WhistlePig Blend: a bi-coastal blending at two epic locations in NYC and LA --Flaviar Members' Exclusive Whiskey Blending
session with the masters of Rye.
The feud between East and West Coast has taken us from sports, to hip-hop, and now onto Whiskey
, the battle continues
… 20 insanely lucky Members and their friends, two cities, one goal
: to find that sweet spot of Madeira, Sauternes and Port.
Our last Flaviar WhistlePig Blend
took place in Vermont on the magical WhistlePig Estate. This year
our Flaviaristas far and wide packed their bags and jet setted off to two epic locations: NYC and LA
We’re still dreaming of the views, the unique atmosphere, and most of all the Whiskey… and while waiting for our liquid gold, here’s a taste of this year’s stunning WhistlePig
Is West Coast The Best Coast?
In the beginning of August
we assembled our dream team of Members, WhistlePig experts and the Flaviar team and headed to the City of Angels
where not only we enjoyed a primetime, unforgettable Whiskey blending experience, but had exclusive first looks at the stunning Hotel Figueroa
Within the gilded walls of this ethereal Spanish style hotel, each group
of Members spent the day drinking cocktails
and concocting their dream Whiskey
, before voting on the supreme blend
Beast Coast Blenders
At the end of August
in the last days of summer bliss, WhistlePig made their way to the East coast— NYC
, high above the bustling city streets, in the swanky View of the World Terrace Club Quarters Hotel
(World Trade Center), Manhattan, NYC.
LA —> NYC...2,789.6 mi. the adventure continues...
With the Flaviar and WhistlePig team offering Sprit-ual guidance, each group was advised on which flavor profiles to focus, and just how to strike that perfect balance between Madeira, Sauternes and Port.
At the stroke of sunset, with sublime views of all Manhattan, NYC WhistlePig blenders battled it out overlooking a twinkling skyline before voting for the best blend.
As for the glorious juice. You can have a taste for yourselves and decide…
