Like WhistlePig’s Newest Rye? Now You Can Buy The Whole Barrel
Mecum Auctions will be running an event from May 14th through the 21st. Among the lots, which include various cars and boats, is a “WhistlePig Experience with Tour and Barrel.” Lot Z298 includes a 3-day, 2-night trip four 4 to the WhistlePig Distillery in Shoreham, Vermont to tour the facility.

The high bidder will receive barrel #001 which has been aged for 4 years, 8 months, and 14 days presented in 200 750ml bottles along with the actual barrel to use for display. All proceeds from this lot will go to FarmAid, a charity that works to support farmers and strengthen America.
