WhistlePig has released their limited edition WhistlePig Home Stock rye whiskey created through a virtual crowd-blending experience.

WhistlePig asked consumers to experiment at home with their by WhistlePig ‘Blend Your Own’ whiskey kits which included samples of WhistlePig’s rye, wheat and barley whiskeys, along with blending tools and instructions.

Once WhistlePig’s master blender Pete Lynch received all the submissions, he determined the three most popular styles of whiskey and after all three whiskeys were blended and tasted, consumers voted on which should be bottled as WhistlePig Home Stock.

WhistlePig’s Home Stock winner – receiving 44.1% of the votes – was Blend Number 3, which consisted of 45% rye, 30% wheat and 25% barley. WhistlePig Home Stock [Blend Number 3] is said to contain notes of nutmeg, orange vest and vanilla.

WhistlePig Home Stock [Blend Number 3] is being made available for $73 per 750ml bottle and WhistlePig will donate 20% of its online sales on Flaviar and Caskers to the United States Bartenders’ Guild (USBG) Foundation’s Emergency Assistance Program, which provides Covid-19 relief grants to on-trade workers.
