The Winston Class, Whistlepig


It’s always refreshing when whisky producers prove they are capable of laughing at themselves, and this is perhaps the best satirical video we’ve ever seen. Behold The Winston Class from Whistlepig – an “ultra, ultra, ultra-premium, premium” whiskey, which being free-range and caressed by a life coach and personal masseuse, is available for US$20,000 a bottle.

Perhaps it’s the fact the prank comes from Whistlepig, which has been the subject of controversy over transparency (the whiskey is distilled in Canada and matured in Vermont, US), but the video is pretty side tickling.

CEO and founder Raj Bhakta even finds time to knock the trend of ultra-premium whiskey releases: “Click on the link below after contacting your wealth advisor,” he says. “Bottoms up to the top 1%.”
