Good things come to those who wait.

In 2007 a man named Raj Bhakta purchased a scenic piece of land nestled in the rural areas of Shoreham, Vermont. This idyllic location started serving as the main operation grounds of WhistlePig, homing a wide array of pigs, sheep, goats, bees, horses, and maple trees — as well as one big mighty dream of producing premium, high-quality Rye Whiskey. Raj’s vision caught the eyes and ears of Maker's Mark distiller Dave Pickerell who avidly hopped onto the team, and just like that, the most awarded Rye Whiskey-making team in the world was born. Their principle of distilling follows one rule: our grain, our water, our wood. Okay, maybe they follow three rules, but you get our point. With a 500-acre playground at their disposal, the WP team grows and harvests the best ingredients and experiments with barreling and bottling, making it super hard for anyone to out-craft them.

Their oldest Rye expression has been allowed to mellow for 18 years, aaaalmost leaving its rebellious teenage phase before being allowed to sally out into the world. The Double Malt Rye got crafted from a mash bill of Rye, Malted Rye, and Malted Barley — the Rye provides the bold peppery spice notes, the Malted Rye takes care of the floral and earthy undertones, and the Malted Barley adds a splash of that rich, toasty sweetness. This exceptional bang of flavors received a luxurious finish in Spanish PX Sherry Casks, promising a truly unforgettable experience.

*This bottle is a collector’s item; we will not be able to entertain any refunds or exchanges.

**Individual orders are limited to one item per person, as we wish to give everyone the opportunity to participate.

***Any kind of transit damage is insured and will be reimbursed.
