Total Wine & More - MI


Brand: WhistlePig

Once the leading American spirit, Rye Whiskey faded from popularity after prohibition …until a dedicated crew of Rye enthusiasts settled in an unlikely place, turning a historic dairy barn into a world class whiskey distillery in remote Shoreham, Vermont, where we keep the things that make Rye great, throw out the rest, and constantly innovate to make whiskey our way.

With a drink-our-mistakes attitude and an unbridled appetite for exploration, we distill genuine farm-to-glass whiskey. Spearheaded by our Head of Whiskey Development, Liz Rhoades and Chief Blender Meghan Ireland, our strong female leadership flips the script on distilleries of the past.

“Wonderful whiskeys. Neat, rocks or cocktails, you’ll never go wrong with the Pig!”

The name allegedly stems from the owner’s journey passing a hiker in Colorado in 2003, who told him to watch out for a whistle pig (groundhog).
