A blustery, January day calls for a hearty cocktail– something that warms you from the inside out. WhistlePig Straight Rye Whiskey is the way to go. Their whiskey is hand-bottled on a farm in Shoreham, Vermont, and aged for at least ten years through a unique double-barrel process. Even if you aren’t a proclaimed “Whiskey Drinker,” WhistlePig has a smoothness that tastes great in a mixed cocktail. without too much bite, or can be sipped straight if that’s your style.
On January 9th, taste WhistlePig yourself at The Sauce’s Winter Whiskey Feast, where The Food Network’s Nikki Martin will create 5 courses paired with WhistlePig Whiskey cocktails, and will even use the whiskey in some of the dishes. Get your tickets here.
