Committed to the Triple Terroir dream dram.
In 2007, a band of dedicated Rye enthusiasts bought the farm — they actually purchased a plot of land in Vermont lovingly named WhistlePig Farm. They teamed up with master distiller Dave Pickerell — formerly of Maker’s Mark — to bring genuine Rye Whiskey back to the forefront of American Whiskeys.
Founded in 2008, WhistlePig is now the most awarded Rye Whiskey maker in the world. They live by a simple ethos: protect what makes Rye Whiskey great, toss out the rest, and then innovate to make it better. They have grown to produce several award-winning core products. In 2017 WhistlePig won the coveted ‘Best In Show Whiskey’ title from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. They’ve also experimented with a variety of finished wood special edition Whiskeys.
As they have been growing their business, WhistlePig team has been focused on the end goal of achieving true tripple terroir — meaning everything is done on site, from growing the grain and distilling the spirit to aging the Whiskey and bottling it for sale. WhistlePig Farmstock is the ever-evolving realization of that dream dram. With each release they add more and more of their estate Whiskey, meaning you get a taste of their Triple Terroir Whiskey. A sneak peak so to speak. In time FarmStock will be 100% Triple Terroir. We’ll cheer to that!
Rye Crop No. 002 marries the untamed contours and boldness of their estate Whiskey, which only youth can provide, with the richness of their best six year rye, topped off with the splendor of their 10 year Whiskey. Taste the future of WhistlePig Whiskey, you know you want to!
What the heck is a “whistle pig” anyway? Even though all WhistlePig Whiskey labels are adorned with the sketch of a tuxedo-clad hog, a “whistlepig,” groundhog, and woodchuck all refer to the same animal.
