WhistlePig Roadstock Rye Whiskey

The innovators at WhistlePig loaded an 18-wheeler with casks of their whiskey. These then went on a 6,000-mile trip, during which they were being finished in casks from both the Firestone Walker brewery and Jordan winery.

Founded in 2008, WhistlePig is now the most awarded rye whiskey maker in the world. Their remote 500-acre hard-working farm in bucolic Shoreham, Vermont, is the perfect place to perfect their experiments with blending and finishing, ultimately leading to a portfolio of deeply complex rye whiskeys. In 2017 WhistlePig was awarded the coveted "Best In Show Whiskey" title from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Until his passing in 2018 the WhistlePig farm had been home to the founding father of craft whiskey, Master Distiller Dave Pickerell.

Their vision is to respect tradition and embrace progress, protecting what makes rye whiskey great, and at the same time innovating to make it better. After years of devotion to patient aging and innovative blending, WhistlePig has turned their attention to experimenting with grain, namely the practice of malting rye. Before industrial catalysts were introduced to increase efficiency, farmer distillers would malt a small portion of their rye harvest in order to access the grain's starch content and set off the fermentation process.

WhistlePig has been known for using innovative finishing methods and the Roadstock Rye Whiskey might just be the finest such example. It started with barrels of their whiskey from their farmhouse distillery in Shoreham, Vermont. Half of these were left in their original virgin oak barrels, the rest were transferred into casks from Jordan Winery that used to hold a Bordeaux blend. All of them were then loaded onto a semi-trailer that went on a road trip from Chicago to Los Angeles via Route 66. They made a stop at the Firestone Walker Brewing Company where the balance of whiskey was transferred into Imperial Stout, Imperial Blonde Ale, and Experimental Ale barrels to be finished on their way back to Vermont.

After 6,000 miles on the road, the 18-wheeler unloaded the casks and the distillery team went about blending it into Roadstock Rye Whiskey, corked with a miniature rubber tire. The unique 86-proof spirit has notes of raspberry jam, brown sugar, and toasted cedar.
