WhistlePig began in 2007. After a few years of deep consideration and personal reflection the owners committed themselves to crafting the world’s finest and most interesting Rye Whiskeys. With help from Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, they discovered and purchased an incredible stock of 10 year old blending Whiskey in Canada that was being profoundly misused. That initial stock, for which they are forever grateful, is what kicked off the grand adventure.
With every step of the Whiskey making process the team at WhistlePig asks 3 questions:
“How was this done in the past?”
“Have we learned anything since then that can make this better?”
“Is there another way to do this that’s worth exploring?”
More often than not the answer is there’s always something worth exploring. The team knows the path forward isn’t always a straight line. So they push themselves to innovate and they are reassured by their mistakes. They’re what keep WhistlePig great.
