This award-winning straight rye whiskey is distilled in Indiana, aged 12 years and then finished in a carefully selected set of premium European Oak casks. The finished whiskey is a blend of 63% Madeira finished, 30% Sauternes finished, and 7% Port finished whiskies. The resulting spirit is rich, elegant and luscious with distinctive notes of salted caramel, dark fruit and pepper. This unique rye was awarded a Double Gold medal at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and has quickly become one of the most thought-after finished rye whiskies in the market today. Happy Tasting!

Product Details

This truly unique rye is the brainchild of WhistlePig Master Distiller Dave Pickerell. After studying and experimenting with various technique of the Old World - particularly Scotch whiskies - Dave and the WhistlePig team released this perfected rye in 2014 and has now become a permanent part of the WhistlePig product lineup. The rich caramel, fruit and pepper notes of Madeira combine with rye’s bold, spicy attributes in this whiskey, yielding an elegant ultra-premium straight rye that’s distinctly American yet hearkens to its stately Old World roots. The spirit is distilled in Indiana from rye, aged twelve years and then finished in used European Oak casks. The finished whiskey is a blend of 63% Madeira finished, 30% Sauternes finished, and 7% Port finished whiskies resulting in a rich and elegant spirit with distinctive notes of salted caramel, dark fruit and pepper.

About the Producer

WhistlePig Distillery was founded in Vermont’s Champlain Valley in 2007, when Raj P. Bhakta purchased WhistlePig farm, a 500-plus acres farm in Shoreham, VT. Bhakta joined forces with Master Distiller Dave Pickerell (of Maker’s Mark fame), and the duo procured a batch of North American aged rye. In 2008, they created a five-year plan to transform the farm to a rye distillery, which opened in 2015.
