WhistlePig Farm Stock
MEET THE TRIPLE-TERROIR—A.K.A. BADASS FARM-TO-TABLE RYE.
FarmStock is a historic step in realizing our vision of creating a true farm-to-bottle whiskey. It is the manifestation of the dream that launched the company: to produce the finest whiskey in the world from our Vermont farm.
Crop 001 marries the untamed contours and boldness of our estate whiskey, which only youth can provide, with the richness of our best five to six year ryes, topped off with the splendor of our 12 Year whiskey.
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.
Farm to Bottle
With help from Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, Whistle Pig Distillery discovered and purchased an incredible stock of blending whiskey in Canada that was profoundly misused. That initial stock of whiskey is what allowed them to pursue our vision of a fully farm to bottle distillery.
"We started with a vision: our grain, our water, our wood. This was always the dream. We call it Triple Terroir. We grow fields of Rye on our farm, distilling whiskey to be aged in barrels made from our own oak trees, perfect it with water straight from our well. This is our future; we dare you to out-craft this."
Rye Whiskey has the potential to be the best whiskey in the world. There is no more flavorful whiskey than Rye; it has a robust, spicy character, and a dark, rich flavor. As rye contains less sugar than any other grain, Rye Whiskey is a challenge to produce, requiring aging longer than other whiskies to attain a desired smoothness. But when handled properly, there is no comparison: the brat rye whiskey, once tamed, emerges from many years in the barrel with the power of a linebacker and the grace of a ballerina.
As part of our commitment to Triple Terroir, we cut down our estate-grown oak trees to make our barrels. Why? Vermont is about as far north as oak trees can grow. The shorter growing seasons leads to oak trees with the most growth rings- when aging whiskey encounters a growth ring in a barrel it imparts flavor, so our custom Vermont Oak barrels bring tremendous depth to our whiskeys. One more reason to love Vermont.
