Join Bitters Bar & Food as they host a WhistlePig "Chopped" style competition utilizing this year's release of the WhistlePig Farmstock blend. Cheer on some of the best craft cocktail bartenders and mixologists in the Valley as they compete to  determine who's the best whiskey slanger in the area.

Arrival begins at 1:30 pm. Competition starts at 2 pm. We will be featuring Farmstock 002 Bottled in Barn during the competition, and for the tasting we will be sampling Farmstock 002, 10, 12, and 15 year rye. Cocktails will be judged with the goal to be innovative, display great presentation, create a balanced cocktail, and incorporate the WhistlePig concept into each drink. Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places and you don't want to miss them. Let's just say a trip will be in your future for first place!
