From the Distillery-
"We started with a vision: our grain, our water, our wood. This was always the dream. We call it Triple Terroir. We grow fields of Rye on our farm, distilling whiskey to be aged in barrels made from our own oak trees, perfect it with water straight from our well. This is our future; we dare you to out-craft this.
WhistlePig began when Founder & Chief Steward of the Brand Raj Peter Bhakta purchased the farm in 2007. After a few years of deep consideration and personal reflection he committed to crafting the best farm-to-bottle rye. With help from Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, they discovered and purchased an incredible stock of blending whiskey in Canada that was profoundly misused. That initial stock of whiskey, for which we are forever grateful, is what allowed us to pursue our vision of a fully farm to bottle distillery.
Located in a 150-year-old renovated dairy barn, WhistlePig’s distillery is the culmination of five diligent years. Opened in 2015, we distill 7 days a week in our unique copper pot still designed by world-renowned Master Distiller Dave Pickerell."
