Come one, come all! WhistlePig Whiskey, one we love to sip on, is hosting a tasting at Pride & Joy to finish your weekend with a taste of their highly anticipated Old World 12 Year Whiskey and their WhistlePig Straight Rye Whiskey.
Here’s the low down on WhistlePig:
“WhistlePig was born in 2007, when Raj P. Bhakta bought the Farm. Rather, he purchased the farm. The point is, he is alive and well and married and a father, and the proud owner of WhistlePig Farm. After spending his last dime on 500-plus magical acres in Shoreham, VT, Raj joined forces with Master Distiller Dave Pickerell (of Maker’s Mark fame) to plot the long awaited return of rye whiskey to the States. The two men got their hands on the best batch of aged rye in North America. A few months later, in February ’09, they hatched a 5-year plan to transform WhistlePig Farm into the first ever single malt, one-stop rye shop, with all stages of the process located on site: from growing the grass, to distillation, to barreling and aging, to bottling. With the opening of our single-estate farm distillery in the summer of 2015, what was once a pig-headed dream will be a top-shelf reality.”
And with that story, WhistlePig was born. Would like to hear more about? Then this tasting is for you because Raj P. Bhakta himself will be on-hand for the tasting as well as Master Distiller Dave Pickerell. This is a unique opportunity to meet the Owner and Master Distiller. Bring your bottles and get them signed for this one-of-a-kind event!
For an added bonus, our friend, Nick Nistico, will be on-hand crafting great cocktails.
