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

In 2007, WhistlePig team bought the farm — actually a plot of land in Vermont lovingly named WhistlePig Farm. They 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 Whiskeys. 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 Whiskeys 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 X Flaviar Chef’s Blend 2019 is limited to 1000 bottles.

Smartass Corner:
What the heck is a "whistle pig" anyway? Even though all WhistlePig Whiskey labels are adorned with the sketch of a tuxedo-clad hog, the words whistlepig, groundhog, and woodchuck all refer to the same animal.

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.

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

Rye sparked the first revolution after the American Independence. It was called the Whiskey Rebellion, and it arose when the government tried to tax Whiskey and enforce the taxation on distillers. The lesson here? Don't mess with a Whiskey drinker's dram.
Rye - think of it as Bourbon's edgier cousin. It’s known for what many call a spicy or fruity flavor. Rye (distilled from at least 51% Rye) is not on the sweet side and tends to have a spicier body. That’s why the character of a cocktail made from Rye, instead of Bourbon, is drier.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
George Washington famously loved his Rye Whiskey. In fact, after he served as the first president of the United States, he returned to his farm at Mount Vernon and started a small Rye distillery of his own.
