This 5th Edition, The Spirit Of Mauve, is a celebration of Mauve, one of our founding celebrity pigs. Mauve’s lover, Mortimer, was tragically killed defending her honour in 2014, and was memorialised in The Boss Hog, 2nd Edition, The Spirit Of Mortimer. Mauve heroically persevered for the sake of their son, Mortimer Jr, sadly joined Mortimer in heaven on Valentine's Day. The pain of a broken heart can prove too much for even the strongest of pigs.
The Spirit Of Mauve is a 13 Year Straight Rye Whiskey finished in Calvados Casks in honor of Mauve's undying love of apples. The result is extraordinary. A fine balance between American power and French sophistication.
There’s nothing else like it.
Nose: Mulled Cider with Cardamom opens up to notes of Candied Ginger and a touch of Pipe Tobacco. A lovely Caramel and Vanilla nuance develops with time in the glass, and water wakens a gentle Rye Spice
Palate: Maple Syrup and Pears dominate, balanced by Dark Chocolate and a lasting French Oak Spice. With water, the spice moves front and center and a vibrant, fruit-forward character develops with strong citrus
Finish: Lasting Spice with a touch of Charred Oak, Caramel and Maple Syrup as the finish fades
Danforth Pewter - An Everlasting Partnership
Thomas Danforth II opened a pewter workshop in 1755 in colonial Connecticut, and generations of the Danforth family followed him into the pewter trade. One hundred years later, Thomas Danforth II’s great-great-great-great-great grandson Fred Danforth, and Fred’s wife Judi Danforth, revived the family tradition when they opened Danforth Pewter in Vermont in 1975.
Today, every piece of Danforth, Shirley, and Pewter Port pewter is crafted by hand from 100% lead-free fine pewter in their Middlebury, Vermont workshop.
WhistlePig is proud to feature Danforth Pewter stoppers on all of its Boss Hog products.
