Sourced from Alberta, Canada and aged at the WhistlePig Farm in Vermont, where the temperature fluctuation can go from in the teens in the Winter to as high as 90 degrees in the Summer with the majority of the year being on the colder side. This lower temperature ages the Rye slowly and brings out the best in the whiskey for more flavor and depth.

A note about the age:
The way labels work for these private barrels is that WhistlePig makes a standard label with the youngest juice that could be in the bottle, which is 10 Years for this version of their private barrel release. That is why the label states “10 Years”. When our team tasted through barrels, we were only told they ranged in age 10 years and up, without knowing the actual age of what we were tasting until after we made our decision. It just so happened that the barrel we picked was one of the older ones, aged 17 years, 5 months, and 29 days!
