Elevate your Rye collection to the next level.

In 2007, a band of dedicated Rye enthusiasts bought a farm in Vermont lovingly named Whistle Pig 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. What they do is outsource elements of their production to Canadian distillers, using grain produced by others. Their ultimate vision is to make Whistle Pig an "estate producer," which means that all aspects of Whiskey production will be onsite, from growing the grain to bottling the Spirit. But until then, this is the best choice of a Rye Whiskey hailing from Canada, and we can’t dispute that!

This is already the 3rd edition of this spectacular Straight Rye Whiskey. WhistlePig Double Malt Rye is their oldest Rye that has patiently rested for 18 years. Made from a mash bill of rye, malted rye, and malted barley, this is a nod to the farmers who would malt a portion of the grain to start fermentation before industrial distillation was a thing. What this does to a Whisky is it makes it very, very layered: there’s bold, peppery spice, then there are soft, floral, and earthy notes before rich, sweet, and toasted flavors round everything up. Bold and complex yet delicate and elegant at the same time, this one’s the cherry on top of every Rye collection.

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.
What the heck is a “whistle pig” anyway? Even though the label for Whistle Pig Rye is adorned with the sketch of a tuxedo-clad hog, “whistlepig,” groundhog, and woodchuck all refer to the same animal.
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!
