The 2024 Wigle collaboration with the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club celebrates two Pennsylvania institutions with unbridled enthusiasm for the eccentric traditions of our beloved Keystone State! To celebrate Groundhog Phil, we combined our award-winning Pennsylvania Straight Rye Whiskey and the tradition of Pennsylvania maple syrup production to create a bold, spicy spirit complemented by a pronounced, rich maple sweetness.
We aged this Rye Whiskey for over 3 years in new charred oak barrels, before finishing it in used maple syrup barrels for another 2 1/2 years. The result is a velvety spirit with prominent notes of maple, toffee, white pepper.
For the second year, the label artwork was designed by talented Pittsburgh artist David Klug and approved by Groundhog Phil and his Inner Circle. This Whiskey is sure to help get you through the winter, even if Punxsutawney Phil does see his shadow.
