WhistlePig 10 Year PiggyBank Rye
Whistlepig 10 Year PiggyBank Rye is a limited-edition rye whiskey produced by WhistlePig. It is aged for 10 years and bottled at 110 proof.
It is bottled in a 1-liter replica Berkshire Bitters Pig decanter. The Berkshire Bitters decanters were produced in the 1870s-1890s in Cincinnati as a marketing tool for packaging bitters.1Peachridge Glass – Figural Pig Series | Berkshire Bitters
The 10-year old whiskey commemorates the 10th anniversary of WhistlePig’s first “Best Rye” award. Like much of WhistlePig’s well-aged stocks, it was sourced from Alberta Distillers in Canada.
A second edition was released in 2023. The two releases can be distinguished from each other based on the wax color – black wax on the 2022 edition, and gold in 2023.
WhistlePig also auctioned an original 19th-century, antique Berkshire Bitter Pig that they filled with 20-year old rye whiskey to benefit the Gumball 3000 Foundation. It raised $125,000.
The legacy of WhistlePig’s original blender Dave Pickerell can easily be seen throughout the complex but balanced experience here, the finish clinging to the cheeks for ages. The glass pig, well, that’s just the icing on the cake.
