A long and patiently aged whiskey is only as good as the grain it's born from. With our oldest expression to date, we’re tapping into the time-honored techniques of the farmer distillers who invented the category in America's early days. Our mash bill 79% rye, 15% malted rye and 6% malted barley creates a sipping experience that evolves on the palate from soft and supple to rich and savory. A thrilling encounter accentuated by 18 years of maturation in virgin oak.
The first edition of our Double Malt Rye is crowned with a bespoke glass topper, handmade by AO Glass in Burlington's Art District. Each individual stopper is unique, having been pressed by hand on one of the last remaining 19th-century glass pressing machines. The antique machine was rescued from a historic factory and installed at AO’s Burlington studio the same week WhistlePig’s second still was installed at the distillery in March 2019.
