Just the name, WhistlePig, inspires thoughts of a hog. With the PiggyBank 10-Year Rye Whiskey, the company embraces the image. The decanter is based on a 19th-century Berkshire Bitter Pig, with the liquid inside giving off notes of mint, dill, truffle, black pepper, and tobacco. Bottled inside the pig at 110 Proof, it has an appropriately oakey finish and is sure to be in short supply.

This Straight Rye Whiskey celebrates a decade of innovation since our first Best Rye Award. This ham’s hind is bottled, and wax sealed to keep every drop of goodness safe until posterior consumption. Here’s to a decade of fearless attempts, world’s first whiskeys and drinking our mistakes.

55% ABV / 100 Proof

750 ML

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Freshly poured in the glass, bright and vibrant notes of mint and dill, with light notes of truffle in the background

Palate: Black pepper herbaceous rush to greet the pallet, followed by notes of tobacco, citrus peel, and soft-spoken anise

Finish: Classic long and spicy finish with rich oak tannin to round out the experience.

About the Producer

Located in a 150-year-old renovated dairy barn, WhistlePig’s Distillery is the culmination of five diligent years. Opened in 2015, we distill 7 days a week in our unique copper pot still designed by world-renowned Master Distiller Dave Pickerell.

There’s a lot to learn from the past. But we believe the best era for Whiskey is in front of us. We are constantly pushing ourselves to try new things and to unlock the potential of Rye Whiskey. We protect what makes Rye Whiskey great, toss out the rest, and then innovate to make it better.

WhistlePig began when we purchased our farm in 2007. After a few years of deep consideration and personal reflection we committed ourselves to crafting the world’s finest and most interesting Rye Whiskeys. With help from Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, we discovered and purchased an incredible stock of 10-year-old blending Whiskey in Canada that was being profoundly misused. That initial stock, for which we are forever grateful, is what kicked off our grand adventure.

More often than not the answer is there’s always something worth exploring. We know the path forward isn’t always a straight line. So, we push ourselves to innovate and we’re reassured by our mistakes. They’re what keep us great.

Our commitment to authentic experience doesn’t end when the bottle is capped: while we are growing, harvesting, barreling, and bottling our favorite grain, the animals are also being fruitful and multiplying. Kunekune pigs, sheep, goats, bees and horses call our farm home. Not to mention the 20 acres of maple trees we tap for syrup. Embracing more than 500 acres, we think our farm is the perfect place to experiment and provides us with ample access to the highest quality ingredients.

After the release of our 12-Year-Old World Cask Finish Ryes we decided that no one finish was quite perfect. We wondered if we could take Aristotle’s advice and make the whole be greater than the sum of its parts. Thus began our dedication to blending.

Under the leadership of Chief Blender Pete Lynch and Master Distiller Dave Pickerell our first experiment with blending involved crowdsourcing input from bartenders all across the United States to create the final recipe for what is now WhistlePig 12-Year-Old World Cask Finish Rye.

FarmStock offered our next opportunity to master blending, finding a way to marry the untamed contours and boldness of our Estate Whiskey, which only youth can provide, with the richness and splendor of some of our special reserves.
