Staff Accountant 

About the Organization Like any successful American business, WhistlePig began with a dream. In 2007, we bought a dilapidated dairy farm in Vermont, and after many sleepless nights spent considering different business ventures, we decided to pursue our love of whiskey. With Master Distiller, Dave Pickerell, on board we made the ultimate gamble: investing in 10-year-aged rye whiskey, a spirit that had not yet been rediscovered by the American public. Dave curated liquid from the finest aged Canadian Rye stock available, which was then hand-bottled on the WhistlePig Farm. The gamble paid off and our 10-year old rye whiskey was born.
