WhistlePig and Ben & Jerry’s have teamed up to launch Whiskey Biz Ice Cream. The new collaboration between the Vermont Whiskey brand and Vermont ice cream company gives fans to enjoy the brands together without having to had to the Green Mountain State (where they are located just down the road from one another).
The new Ben & Jerry’s Topped Whiskey Biz ice cream is described as “a brown butter bourbon ice cream with blonde brownies and whiskey caramel swirls topped with white chocolatey ganache and white fudge chunks.” WhistlePig 6 year old PiggyBack Rye is cooked into the caramel swirls.
Ben & Jerry’s launched their new “ice cream innovation,” Topped, at the end of January. Eating the new line of seven flavors is described as “an exercise in personalization and precision,” says the ice cream maker. “Should you scrape off the layer of semi-soft, chocolatey ganache before going any further? Tunnel down and eat the ice cream first? Or get the best of all worlds by removing the lid and eating the flavor vertically with delicious ganache, chunks and ice cream all in one beautifully balanced bite? Whatever method you choose you can’t lose, so go ahead.”
The other six flavors include:
Chocolate Caramel Cookie Dough – Chocolate ice cream with caramel swirls & gobs of chocolate chip cookie dough topped with caramel cups & chocolatey ganache
PB Over the Top – Chocolate ice cream with peanut butter swirls & peanut butter cups topped with mini peanut butter cups & chocolatey ganache
Salted Caramel Brownie – Vanilla ice cream with salted caramel swirls & fudge brownies topped with caramel cups & chocolatey ganache
Strawberry Topped Tart – Sweet cream ice cream with strawberry swirls & pie crust pieces topped with white chocolatey ganache & candy sprinkles
Thick Mint – Mint ice cream with chocolate cookie swirls & mint chocolate cookie balls topped with chocolate cookies & chocolatey ganache
Tiramisu – Mascarpone ice cream with fudge swirls & shortbread pieces topped with espresso fudge chunks & chocolatey ganache
In December, Moët Hennessy established a partnership to exclusively bring WhistlePig to consumers in selected markets in Europe and Asia. As part of this partnership, the LVMH and Diageo-owned drinks company acquired a minority stake in the Vermont-based Rye Whiskey brand.
