WHAT IS BARREL-AGED FRUIT?
We take fresh lemons and limes and barrel-age them in WhistlePig barrels straight from the source in Shoreham, VT. That fruit is then used as a key ingredient in our liquid.
DO YOU SOURCE INGREDIENTS FROM THE WHISTLEPIG FARM?
Yes! The Rye used inside the liquid is sourced directly from WhistlePig. As are the barrels used to barrel-age our fruit.
IS THERE REAL WHISKEY IN THE PIGGYBACK RYE SMASH?
No, this is a rye grain-based beverage with whiskey and bourbon flavor notes. The base uses a combination of rye and barley malt.
HOW SHOULD I DRINK THIS?
The WhistlePig PiggyBack Barrel Aged Rye Smash is best consumed directly from the can while grilling, playing cornhole, and catching up with the crew in your backyard.
WHY IS WHISTLEPIG MAKING A CANNED RYE GRAIN BEVERAGE?
We believe the best era for Whiskey is in front of us. We are constantly pushing ourselves to try new things and to unlock the potential of Rye. The first to create the super-premium, super-aged Rye category, we are excited to introduce the first-ever ready-to-drink Rye beverage.
WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE ON THE WHISTLEPIG BARREL-AGED RYE SMASH?
