WhistlePig Launches Alcohol-Free Whiskey, PiggyBack Devil’s Slide

WhistlePig PiggyBack Devil's Slide Non Whiskey

WhistlePig Whiskey has launched a limited-edition, non-alcoholic whiskey called PiggyBack Devil’s Slide. The Vemront-based whiskey makers will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of he alcohol-free offering to bartenders across the United States to help “offset their lost earnings during the January drought,” says the brand.

WhistlePig PiggyBack Devil’s Slide is distilled from 100% Rye and aged 6 years, then “undistilled to a uniquely quaffable aged non-whiskey.” According to the brand, it has the nose, palate and finish of a WhistlePig favorite, but without the morning after pitfalls.

Along with the new bottling, WhistlePig has shared two of its favorite recipes for Dry January mocktails:

The Best Part of Wakin’ Up:

  •  2 oz. PiggyBack Devil’s Slide Non-Whiskey
  • 1/2 oz. WhistlePig Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup (or any organic maple syrup)
  • 5 oz. freshly brewed coffee
  • Whipped cream and/or a donut on the side

Add all ingredients to a coffee mug, top with whipped cream, stir, sip and get cozy.

On the Wagon Fashioned:

  • 2 oz. PiggyBack Devil’s Slide Non-Whiskey
  • 1/4 oz. WhistlePig Barrel-Aged Maple Syrup (or any organic maple syrup)
  • 4 dashes of non-alcoholic bitters such as Dram Apothecary (with an extra dash for making it to the bitter end of Dry January)
  • Candied ginger garnish

Add all ingredients to an Old Fashioned glass. Add ice. Stir until maple syrup is properly diluted. Garnish, toast and enjoy.

WhistlePig PiggyBack Devil’s Slide is currently on sale for $49.99 per 750ml bottle and can be purchased via the brand’s official website.

In October, WhistlePig revealed The Boss Hog VIII: LapuLapu’s Pacific. The Boss Hog collection explores uncharted territory in the world of rye to create a distinctly unique whiskey. Last year, The Boss Hog VII: Magellan’s Atlantic was awarded Best Rye Whiskey at the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
