Vermont distillery WhistlePig has achieved a milestone with the release of two 100% grain-to-glass whiskeys from the WhistlePig Farm.
WhistlePig FarmStock Beyond Bonded Rye and FarmStock Beyond Bonded Bourbon are the first products harvested, distilled, aged and bottled at the WhistlePig farm and distillery.
By “Beyond Bonded,” WhistlePig means that its whiskey is not only Bottled-in-Bond, but also single barrel, fully traceable at every step of the Farm-to-bottle journey, the company says, and bottled at 100.1 proof, just beyond the bonded whiskey standard.
“Today’s craft spirits drinkers, especially whiskey collectors, are incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about process,” says Jeff Kozak, CEO.
“After working toward a 100% Farm whiskey vision for more than a decade, our team is proud to invite WhistlePig fans to look under the hood at who, where, when and how our grain-to-glass whiskey is created, and to offer a one-of-a-kind experience from each barrel.”
WhistlePig’s FarmStock Beyond Bonded Rye is a straight rye whiskey made from 100% Remington Rye harvested from the North Orwell 1 field of the distillery’s 500-acre farm.
FarmStock Beyond Bonded Bourbon is a straight bourbon whiskey made with a high rye mash bill, with 51% Dent Corn and 49% Remington and Rifle Rye varietals, harvested from North Orwell 1 and North Orwell 2 fields.
Both expressions have been aged for upwards of four years in Vermont Estate Oak barrels, produced from local Vermont oak. The oldest barrel in the release aged for four years, 8 months and 14 days.
