Blending to Perfection: The Quest for Triple Terroir in WhistlePig Whiskey
Sunday April 30 – 1:45 – 3:15pm
BCAE | Vacationland Room 1
Sponsored by WhistlePig
Presented by Dave Pickerell
WhistlePig Master Distiller Dave Pickerell knows a thing or two about whiskey: since stepping down as the Master Distiller for Maker’s Mark, and has had, arguably, more impact on craft whiskey distilling than anyone else in America. At WhistlePig, he has not only amassed an exquisite stock of aged rye whiskies, but has helped launch a bold grain-to-glass rye that showcases the best of their local Vermont terroir. Pickerell’s challenge: to marry these flavors and create the finest rye whiskey in the world. Gain first-hand insight into the fascinating world of whiskey blending by tasting and blending component whiskeys with the man himself.
