wWw at the WhistlePig Holiday Party!

After hosting a wildly successful event with Whistlepig in November, launching The Boss Hog--WhistlePig's new Single Barrel Barrel Strength Rye--I was delighted to hear back from the folks at WhistlePig with an invitation to their annual Holiday Party.

Hosted at Webster Hall--in the 126-year-old speakeasy below that used to be frequented by Al Capone and his cronies--the party was already in full swing when we arrived at 8:30.

The band--bedecked in festive holiday attire--was singing a mix of old tunes and 1920s renditions of contemporary pop songs. A great mix that got everyone in the mood to drink and dance! 

As soon as we walked in we were handed a glass of Whistlepig and photographed.
True VIP treatment!

The WhistlePig Stewards of the Brand--our new friend Ben and our old friend Michael--were gracious hosts and answered all of our questions about the tasty whiskey we were sampling.

Behind us, some rambunctious guests were getting up to some shenanigans! 

And others were sporting festive 1920s getups--vests, furs and pearls, and suspenders--imbuing the whole evening with a vintage vibe. 

The dapper WhistlePig gentlemen.

Back in the speakeasy bar, the bartender was secretly pulling pranks,

 and we were grinning with glee, after discovering the event was open bar!

Which meant a celebratory glass of champagne was in order!

Before we called it a night, we finally managed to track down Michael for some photos!

Thank you to Michael, and the whole WhistlePig family for inviting us to be part of such a delightful and festive evening! We had so much fun, and it was a the perfect kick off to the holiday season.

Happy Holidays!
