An interesting comment in Clay's blog, Mash Notes, about WP.
"Whistle Pig was originally sourced exclusively from Canada, but it now comes from a variety of distilleries in both Canada and the United States."
Is this new information? My understanding was that all WP was coming from Canada but perhaps this has changed as sourced whiskey gets tighter.
Doesn't seem likely we can depend on anybody from WP confirming or denying it of course.
Hog wash. How many U. S. Distillers were making a 100% rye mash for bulk sale ten years ago? How many are today?
Barton is the only one I know of who did but that was awhile back and any remaining stock belongs to Sazerac.
They changed the recipe and the country recently (MGPI) haven't heard if it hitting the shelves yet
What, they're no longer using "the best Rye in the World"?
It only acquires that label after it's in the bottle. It's just another whiskey up to that point.
That was the reason Dave Pickerel gave for sourcing the whisky from Canada, that he had found "the best Rye in the World" and only the best was good enough for WP.
Of course MGP arguably produces the best 95% rye.
Oh don't rain on my parade man, the clouds have passed, the Sun is shining and I'm in a glass half full sort of mood.
