Before we even open the bottle, or tear into the box containing the sunglasses, I wanted to check out the video above to get a feel for things. Whew! That did not disappoint. If you have not yet seen it, stop reading, and scroll back up to it. Okay, now we may continue.
Now let’s take a peek through the press material (of which there is plenty for this release) and see what the Shoreham, VT distillery has to say about this release:
The leaders in independent craft whiskey teamed up with Pit Viper, the bold outdoor sports and lifestyle eyewear brand, to create a duo that inspires adventurous drinkers and supports solar power. Limited Edition WhistlePig SummerStock Whiskey and matching Pit Viper SummerStock 2000s sunglasses launch the first day of summer, kicking off a full season of summer cocktails, Summer RyeDays and more.
I can get onboard with the idea of using whiskey to do good things. In this case, we’re talking about raising money for solar. WhistlePig is operating entirely on solar power, so they’re definitely invested in solar power and sustainability, and taking it a step further in supporting sustainable energy.
After installing its first solar array in 2020, WhistlePig now generates enough solar power for the full craft operation, and has plans to start sending energy back to the local grid this year. A portion of proceeds from the Limited Edition SummerStock Whiskey and Sunglass duo will be donated to Everybody Solar.
If you’d like to get your sweaty summer paws on the WhistlePig x PitViper collaborative kit you can place an order directly through WhistlePig by clicking here. As for me, I’m ready to take this iridescent bottle topper off this loudly-dressed bottle and see what it does in the glass. Let’s taste!
