Founded in 2008, WhistlePig is now the most awarded Rye Whiskey maker in the world. They live by a simple ethos: protect what makes Rye Whiskey great, toss out the rest, and then innovate to make it better. 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. This Vth Edition, The Spirit Of Mauve, is a celebration of Mauve, one of our founding celebrity pigs. Mauve’s lover, Mortimer, was tragically killed defending her honor in 2014 and was memorialized in The Boss Hog, IInd Edition, The Spirit Of Mortimer. Mauve heroically persevered for the sake of their son, Mortimer Jr, but sadly joined Mortimer in heaven this Valentines Day. The pain of a broken heart can prove too much for even the strongest of pigs. The Spirit Of Mauve is a 13 Year Straight Rye Whiskey finished in Calvados Casks in honor of Mauves undying love of apples. The result is extraordinary. A fine balance between American power and French sophistication. There’s nothing else like it. Pick up your bottle today!

Mulled cider with cardamom aromas opens up to notes of candied ginger and a touch of pipe tobacco. A lovely caramel and vanilla nuance develops with time in the glass, and water wakens a gentle rye spice. On the palate are notes of maple syrup and pears, balanced by dark chocolate and a lingering French oak spice. The finish is lingering with a touch of charred oak and caramel, and maple syrup as the finish fades.
