In lieu of National Cocktail Day, March 24th, Vermont-based companies, WhistlePig Whiskey and Ben & Jerry’s, have forces to create the ice cream of a whiskey lover’s dreams with a ganache-topped ice cream concoction, the Whiskey Biz Topped, a brown butter bourbon ice cream with blonde brownies & WhistlePig Whiskey-infused caramel swirls, which took more than a year of taste tests, research and development to perfect, topped with white chocolatey ganache & white fudge chunks.
“We’ve had an absolute blast working with our friends at Ben & Jerry’s and could not be happier with the way Whiskey Biz turned out,” says Meghan Ireland, Whiskey Blender at WhistlePig Whiskey.
“Having been mostly focused on overseeing the development of whiskey these last couple years, working with flavour house experts at Ben & Jerry’s was a real treat for me. We respect their company ethos and have always wanted to collaborate with their team.”
WhistlePig‘s in-house mixologists and Ben & Jerry’s flavour gurus have also developed a few signature cocktail recipes using the Whiskey Biz, such as a cocktail and cake pairing and “The Closer,” an affogato-style serving, all absolutely delightful and best enjoyed from the comfort of home.
