WhistlePig’s Non-Alcoholic & CBD-Infused Rye Whiskeys Are Right here For Dry January

The innovative non-alcoholic rye whiskeys can be enjoyed with coffee, on the rocks or in your favorite mocktail.

Acclaimed Vermont distillery WhistlePig has introduced two non-alcoholic rye whiskeys that could help Dry January drinkers spice up their non-alcoholic beverage options.

The main difference between the two limited edition bottles is that one non-alcoholic rye is infused with “locally sourced, fairly traded Vermont hemp extract CBD” and the other is not.

WhistlePig debuted its non-alcoholic PiggyBack Devil’s Slide Rye Whiskey to be enjoyed with a cup of coffee or mixed into your favorite mocktail.

This limited-edition bottling was followed by the PiggyBack Half Send, a non-alcoholic rye whiskey infused with the aforementioned Vermont hemp extract CBD, intended to be served as a relaxing treat over ice or in a mocktail.

Both are made from 100% rye, aged for six years to capture the brand’s signature bold and complex flavor, and then undistilled to remove the alcohol, leaving only 0.05% alcohol or 1 proof.

If the idea of ​​a non-alcoholic whiskey sounds odd, remember that WhistlePig is known for its imaginative releases, including a roadstock rye that’s road-aged while traveling 6,000 miles across America in a semi-truck, and one with whisky studded ice cream collaboration with Ben & Jerry’s.

And so it’s not surprising that WhistlePig dropped two non-alcoholic whiskeys during Dry January, a health campaign that encourages drinkers to abstain from alcohol for a month as a physical and mental refreshment.

Piggyback Devil’s Slide sold out shortly after its launch, but limited supplies are available online while supplies last. All proceeds go to bartenders across America who lost business due to the infamous January off-season.

WhistlePig also shared some bartender-approved Devil’s Slide mocktail recipes from Gray Miller, bar manager at Julep in Ponte Vedra, Florida. Check them out below.
