This 12 year-old Rye Whiskey is a marriage of whiskeys that have been finished in Madeira, Sauternes, and Port casks. ‘Old World’ is a result of a 4 year long innovation experiment that included creating and examining dozens of unique finishes, blending, and input from over 500 bartenders. The result is a whiskey that takes the elements that are most quintessential in an American rye - boldness and character - and fuses them with the elegance and grace of an 18 year old Scotch.
WhistlePig is a Vermont-based estate producer of their own Whiskies. However, as they are ramping up production, they still contract out to external sources for the majority of their spirits.In 2007, a band of dedicated Rye enthusiasts bought the farm — they actually purchased a plot of land in Vermont lovingly named Whistle Pig Farm. They teamed up with master distiller Dave Pickerell — formerly of Maker’s Mark — to bring genuine Rye Whiskey back to the forefront of American Whiskies. It took a lot of time, patience, experimentation, and reinvestment, but they have grown to produce five award-winning core products and have experimented with a variety of finished wood special edition Whiskies too.
