Today, WhistlePig hosted an exclusive Single Barrel Tasting and Cocktail event at DSWS Floor 13 event space. People learned more about the 100% rye whiskey and about this popular brand with its master distiller Dave Pickerell. The guests also had a change to experience the single barrels neat and in cocktails as well as some traditional Vermont finger food. The event was a huge success and Classic & Vintage Artisanal Spirits is proud to have this fabled brand in our portfolio.
About the Master Distiller
Dave, a luminary in the world of whiskey, is one of the nation’s preeminent master distillers. Before joining WhistlePig, he spent 14 years as the Master Distiller for Maker’s Mark in Loretto, Kentucky. He joined the WhistlePig team with a simple (yet astoundingly complex) objective: create the finest rye whiskey.
About WhistlePig 10 YEAR OLD:
WhistlePig produces a 100-proof, straight rye whiskey, aged for at least ten years through a unique double-barrel process.
WhistlePig was released in the summer of 2010 to great critical acclaim, earning 96 points from Wine Enthusiast, their highest rating ever for a rye whiskey, a “highest recommendation” from Spirits Journal, as well as accolades from The Wall Street Journal, GQ, Forbes, Maxim, Imbibe Magazine, and many others. As Master Distiller Dave Pickerell notes, these extraordinary honors both “humble and set a high bar” for the company.
WhistlePig embodies the perfect combination of proof, purity, and age — hitting “the sweet spot” in all three categories. In short: more rye, all the proof, and the perfect age. All in. Full stop.
