Whistlepig 14 Year Old Single Barrel Rye / The Boss Hog 3rd Edition
The Whistlepig distillery was established in Vermont in 2007 by Raj Peter Bhakta, who enlisted the late Dave Pickerell as Master Distiller, having previously worked at Maker's Mark for 14 years. Initially, the distillery sourced casks of rye whisky while they were setting up their distilling operation. The majority of these barrels were sourced from MGP in Indiana, and from Alberta Distillers in Canada. Their high-quality blends, single barrels, and unusual cask finishes have seen the brand become and overwhelming success. They began distilling at Whistlepig Farm in 2015, bottling the first of their own distillate as part of their "triple terroir" Farmstock blends in 2017. In the same year, Bhakta retired from the company, selling his stake in it to BDT Partners two years later.
This is the third edition of the highly sought-after, The Boss Hog, this time titled, 'The Independent.'
This barrel was sourced from Alberta Distillers in Canada and was finished in a hogshead.
This bottle has been signed by the late Dave Pickerell, who was their Master Distiller and widely known as the founding father of American craft distilling. Sadly, Dave passed away on 1st November 2018, at age 62.
