WhistlePig FarmStock Crop 001

You might find it hard to believe, but famed whiskey brand WhistlePig actually built their reputation on products that they had not, themselves, produced. That’s right – they were a non-distilling liquor company who sourced their ryes from different parts of Canada and the United States. But now, they’re looking to finally change that with the release of their first partially in-house distilled rye whiskey, FarmStock Crop 001.

A portion of this whiskey’s content (about 20%) comes from a 1.5 to 2-year aged batch of rye made entirely on-site – meaning from seed to locally-sourced oak barrels – at WhistlePig Farms in Vermont. Not only is that a huge step forward for the brand in their quest to create a “a true farm-to-bottle whiskey,” but it’s also encouragingly respectable to see that they are being so transparent about the journey. With a pleasant nose of oak, caramel, toffee, and a hint of mint; a palate rich in spices and with hints of fruit and citrus; and a complex tobacco, butterscotch, and vanilla finish, this promises to be a superb rye whiskey that will go down in the annals of liquor history. It will retail starting at $90. [Purchase]
