We’ve teamed up with WhistlePig and four award-winning chefs for an exclusive, flavorful, and fragrant Rye Whiskey.

In 2007, aspiring Whiskey-maker Raj Bhakta bought the farm — he actually purchased a plot of land in Vermont lovingly named Whistle Pig Farm. He teamed up with the late-great master distiller Dave Pickerell — formerly of Maker’s Mark — to bring genuine Rye Whiskey back to the forefront of American Whiskies. It took a lot of time, patience, experimentation, and reinvestment, but they have grown to produce five award-winning core products and have experimented with a variety of finished wood special edition Whiskies too.

OK… here at Flaviar we are pretty excited about this. We’ve partnered with the good folks at WhistlePig to create this special edition Rye Whiskey. We brought four world-class, James Beard Nominated chefs to the WhistlePig farm and turned them loose among the casks to help us blend something new — Chefs Michael Gulotta from New Orleans; Jamie Malone from Minneapolis; David Posey from Chicago; and Justin Woodward from Portland. What they came up with is a rich blend of twelve year-old WhistlePig high Rye (95% Rye/5% malted barley) finished in a variety of Wine casks, including 40% Madeira, 30% Sherry, 20% Port, and 10% Sauternes.

Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that classically-trained chefs selected casks of Spirit finished in famous Wines from classic food pairings. And you will not be surprised just how great the flavor profile is. And this special release of WhistlePig Chef’s Blend 2019 is limited to 1000 bottles.

Smartass corner:
What the heck is a “whistle pig” anyway? Even though all Whistle Pig Whisky labels are adorned with the sketch of a tuxedo-clad hog, the words whistlepig, groundhog, and woodchuck all refer to the same animal.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in WhistlePig Chef's Blend 2019 and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Crystal Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The fragrance is lovingly complex with notes of ripe stone fruits, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile is both powerful and a delicate dance of classic Rye spice, fig, apricot, warm woods, pipe tobacco, and orange blossom honey along with interesting notes of Grappa on the back palate.

The finish is long, fruity, spicy, and rich.
