Ancient buffalo carved paths through the wilderness that led American pioneers and explorers to new frontiers. One such trail led to the banks of the Kentucky River where Buffalo Trace Distillery has been making bourbon whiskey the same way for more than 200 years. In tribute to the mighty buffalo and the rugged, independent spirit of the pioneers who followed them, we created our signature Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
When the Mitchell family entered the whiskey bonding business in 1887, it was at the peak of the Victorian whiskey boom and pot still Irish whiskey was at its summit. Mitchells originated the system of labeling casks with a daub of paint that identified the age of the whiskey inside and the names of these iconic whiskeys have survived to today.
WhistlePig began when Founder & Chief Steward of the Brand Raj Peter Bhakta purchased the farm in 2007. With help from Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, they discovered and purchased an incredible stock of blending whiskey in Canada that was profoundly misused. That initial stock of whiskey, for which we are forever grateful, is what allowed us to pursue our vision of a fully farm to bottle distillery.
