WhistlePig 10yo is a rye whiskey whose mash bill is entirely composed of rye. It is aged for 10 years in new American oak barrels before being finished for a few months in ex-bourbon barrels and bottled at 100 proof (50% ABV). WhistlePig was first founded in 2007 with the purchase of a farm in the state of Vermont. Then the company bought a large batch of more than 10 years old Canadian rye whiskey and began to mature it in its warehouses; it is precisely this rye that is bottled. In 2015 the company also began distilling.
