Class Action

Whistlepig Straight Rye Whiskey

In January 2016, a false advertising class-action lawsuit filed against Whistlepig over its marketing of Whistlepig Straight Rye Whiskey was voluntarily dismissed. The complaint, which was originally filed in state court in November 2014 and transferred to federal court in December 2014, alleged that the company misleadingly markets its Straight Rye Whiskey as a craft whiskey produced on, and with ingredients from, a small farm in Vermont when, in reality, the whiskey is produced in large quantities at a factory in Canada without any ingredients from the Vermont farm. The named plaintiff’s claims were dismissed When a complaint is dismissed with prejudice, it cannot be refiled. and the putative class members’ claims were dismissed When a complaint is dismissed without prejudice, an amended version of the complaint can be refiled.. The reasons for the dismissal have not yet been disclosed. (Aliano et al v. WhistlePig, LLC and Goamericago Beverages, LLC, Case No. 14-cv-10148, N. D. IL.)
