WhistlePig just dropped a new release, but it’s not the rye whiskey this Vermont distillery is famous for. In the spirit of Dry January, the WhistlePig team came up with a non-alcoholic Old Fashioned called Dank & Dry, made with non-psychoactive cannabis terpenes to give it extra flavor without the high.

The base of Dank & Dry is WhistlePig’s Barrel Aged Maple Old Fashioned recipe, which in this case is made with 100 percent rye “non-whiskey” that is reverse distilled to remove any alcohol, barrel-aged maple syrup, and Vermont cannabis terpenes. That last ingredient, which is the source of the recognizable smell and flavor of weed, comes from cannabis that was grow in whiskey barrels (of course) to provide an extra boost of flavor.

We got to try an early sample of Dank & Dry, and it really is unlike other NA bottled cocktails. There is a definite weed skunkiness on the palate, along with notes of sweet potpourri, maple, orange, cinnamon, and spice. “At the intersection of non-alc and cannabis trends, terpenes offer a new frontier for flavor that we couldn’t resist experimenting with,” said head blender Meghan Ireland in a statement. “The results are fire, with terpenes adding aromas and mouthfeel that are often missing from non-alc innovation. Whether you’re still walking the hog, enjoying the electric lettuce, or abstaining altogether, WhistlePig fans do not have to miss out on a great tasting Old Fashioned this January.”

100 percent of the proceeds of Dank & Dry are going to benefit bartenders who might not be making as much money through an organization called Turning Tables during this month when many people are abstaining. You can purchase a bottle directly through the WhistlePig website now for $50, or you can puff it up it into a Hot Box Bundle for $64.20 (get it?) that comes with a cocktail smoker shaped like a pig and a “dime bag” of wood chips.
