Event description
A WhistlePig whiskey tasting and dinner

About this Event

In 2006, a band of dedicated rye whiskey enthusiasts purchased a 500-acre dairy farm in the rolling hills of Vermont's Champlain Valley. Just until recently, with his untimely passing, the WhistlePig farm had been home to Master Distiller Dave Pickerell.

After he graduated from West Point with a Bachelor's degree in chemistry, Pickerell served in the military for 11 years as a cavalry officer. Later, he received a Master's in chemical engineering from the University of Louisville, before serving as chairman of the Kentucky Distillers Association and master distiller at Maker's Mark in Loretto, Kentucky for 13 years. "This is what I was meant for," said Pickerell of the whiskey business.

After leaving Maker's Mark, Pickerell embarked on a journey to find the perfect rye whiskey. "Rye, in its own essence, is just a brilliant grain... I wanted to do rye because it's America's historical whiskey."

Please join us as Steward of the Brand, Tony Devencenzi, guides us through a tasting paired with a special picnic-inspired menu by Chef Mike Kapetanakis.
