Our “story” with Whistle Pig goes way back. Their master distiller David Pickerel was a friend to us & a loyal supporter of Restaurant Nicholas. Turns out he liked good food.😜 To say David was a big deal in Kentucky would be the understatement of the year. How else do you think all my connections in Kentucky started?
The Boss Hog himself always made sure we had the best barrels for the restaurant. He & I even once blended a few barrels together. I kinda think he just wanted to drink together. Sadly the whisky world lost a legend a few years ago & I lost a friend. I have a few more barrels of Whistle Pig that he & I picked still up at the farm in Vermont & today I am releasing our 3rd barrel of 10 year Whistle Pig.
