DISTILLERY RAISES PIGS TO TASTE LIKE WHISKEY

KITCHEN DAILY 5/13/14
If you enjoy whiskey and you like pork, you’ll probably be pleased to hear what a distillery in Iowa is doing. The meat and the drink may be one in the same soon. And we’re not talking about whiskey-infused bacon. The founders of Templeton Rye Distillery in Templeton, Iowa want to create pork that already tastes like their whiskey. So they’re attempting to do just that. According to Iowa’s WQAD, the founders of the distillery are breeding 25 Duroc  pigs, which are known for their high-quality meat, on a farm in Iowa to give them the distinct flavor of their whiskey. Don’t worry, they aren’t making the pigs drink any of the stuff. Instead, they’re filling the pigs’ feed with the dry distillery grain used to make the alcohol.  The pigs won’t be getting to taste any of the alcohol themselves. The distillery has shared a detailed breakdown of the pigs’ feeding schedule on their site, which includes the dry distillery grain. The distillery’s co-founder, Keith Kerkhoff, says this has never been done before, and he tells WQAD that the distillery is already getting inquiries about the pigs. They should be ready in June, when the Templeton team will have a tasting for members of the Templeton Rye Bootleggers Society, according to WQAD. In addition to the tasting, the distillery has said that in June the pigs will be processed and also made available to restaurants and the public.
