Though being relatively new in the whiskey world, it has become a well-known brand WhistlePig released their first expression in 2015 and have since released many acclaimed Rye whiskeys.

History of WhistlePig Rye Whiskey

A relatively new entrant in the world of whiskeys, WhistlePig has achieved tremendous growth in the last 13 years. A group of rye enthusiasts led by its founder and CEO Raj Peter Bhakta purchased a dairy farm in 2007 in Vermont and named it a WhistlePig farm. With a desire to bring the rye whiskey at the forefront, they came together with Master distiller Dave Pickerell to create rye whiskeys. Initially, they purchased 10-year-old matured whiskey stock from a Canadian distillery and then started their business by further maturing and aging at their Vermont distillery.

Making process of WhistlePig Rye 10 Year Old Whiskey

The Rye used to distill the WhistlePig Rye 10 Year Old is grown in Canada itself. During maturation, the colder Canadian weather gives it a unique finish and taste. It's rare as it is made from 100% rye, finished in ex-Bourbon barrels, which gives it a raw taste of grain. WhistlePig Rye 10 Year Old is made with a two-barrel aging process. The first step is a 10 year aging of the rye whiskey, which is done in new American virgin oak barrels followed by further maturation in Bourbon barrels.

The aging process in two different barrels gives it a unique undertone and spice. Currently, the WhistlePig maintains its own distillery where rye is grown, and hand bottling is done. The distillery has a copper pot that was designed by Dave Pickerell and is functional since 2015.

Alcohol Content in WhistlePig Rye 10 Year Old Whiskey
