Whistlepig Rye Whiskey 10 Year 100 Proof 750ml
$124.99 price per bottle
WhistlePig 100/100 is a 100 proof, 100 percent rye whiskey, aged for at least ten years in new American oak barrels. It was released in the summer of 2010 to great critical acclaim, receiving numerous distinctions such as the highest ever designation from Wine Enthusiast Magazine and highest recommendation from the Spirits Journal. These extraordinary honors humble and set a high bar for Master Distiller Dave Pickerell who spent over a year on an exhaustive search of North America for the best rye whiskey in the world. Dave feels that 100/100 embodies the perfect combination of proof, purity, and age -- hitting what he calls the sweet spot in all three categories. WhistlePig Straight Rye Whiskey is hand bottled at the WhistlePig Farm Distillery in Shoreham, Vermont and is available in a limited quantity.
WhistlePig Whiskey is located on one of the oldest farms in Vermont. Cultivation began here in the early 19th century in what was then known as the hamlet Shaksboro. Steam engines replaced the lifeblood of the town a grist and lumber mill powered by the Lemon Fair River - which still meanders through farm - and the town slowly dissipated until vanishing entirely in the 1930's. The farm remained in operation until 2006 when it was purchased and renamed by WhistlePig's founder Raj Peter Bhakta. WhistlePig Farm is being lovingly restored, a slow and painstaking process, in order to ensure that we produce the finest rye whiskey in the world.
WhistlePig's Master Distiller, Dave Pickerell, a luminary in the world of whiskey, is one of the nation's preeminent master distillers. Before joining WhistlePig, Dave spent 14 years as Maker's Mark Master Distiller in Loretto, Kentucky. However, he has since joined the WhistlePig team in order to create what he regards as his magnum opus: WhistlePig 100% Straight Rye Whiskey. To this end, we are proud to report that our first whiskey, a 10yr old Straight Rye Whiskey, was awarded by Wine Enthusiast its highest ever rating for rye whiskey at 96 pts.
