First thing first: what the hell is Umeshu? It’s a liqueur from Japan made by steeping unripe ume plums in Shochu and sugar. It’s a delicious concoction, and WhistlePig decided to finish their sixth Boss Hog in it.

Saying it’s a unique potion would be an understatement. Each of only a thousand bottles of this insanely lavish experiment comes with a beautiful black Samurai topper, while the rare 120 Proof Rye Whiskey within offers a rich and savory umami palate with an endless oaky finish. They call it stupendous, and we agree.

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.
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.
A decade ago there were only 6 brands of Rye Whiskey hailing from Kentucky, nowadays there are more than 50!
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.
