Ben & Jerry's partners with WhistlePig on new ice cream flavor called "Whiskey Biz"

American icons Ben and Jerry's has partnered with fellow Vermont company WhistlePig Whiskey to create a new booze-infused flavor called 'Whiskey Biz.' The Whiskey Biz Topped flavor is a brown butter bourbon ice cream with blonde brownies & WhistlePig Whiskey-infused caramel swirls, topped with white chocolatey ganache & white fudge chunks. 

Meghan Ireland, Whiskey Blender, WhistlePig Whiskey says:
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. Having been mostly focused on overseeing the development of whiskey these last couple years, working with flavor 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.

Additionally, Ben & Jerry's and WhistlePig have created the Whiskey Biz Cocktail, which you can make yourself with these steps:


1 ½ oz. WhistlePig PiggyBack Rye

1 oz. caramel base

1 oz. brown sugar simple syrup

1 dash chocolate bitters

2 oz. Whiskey Biz Topped ice cream, tempered

3 medium ice cubes

Step 1 - Gather all ingredients. Make the brown sugar simple syrup by combining ¼ cup light brown sugar and ¼ cup water in a glass measuring cup. Microwave for 1-2 minutes or until the sugar has melted. Place in the refrigerator to cool completely before using.

Step 2 - Make the caramel base by combining 2 oz. caramel sauce with either 3 oz. half and half or 3 oz. WhistlePig PiggyBack Rye Whiskey. The latter results in a boozier cocktail. Pour both ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine.

Step 3 - To prepare the cocktail, measure the rye whiskey, caramel base, brown sugar simple syrup, chocolate bitters and ice into a cocktail shaker. Top with the Whiskey Biz Topped ice cream. Shake to combine. Pour into a rocks or coupe glass.

Like all Ben and Jerry products, Whiskey Biz is certified Kosher. Because of the partnership, WhistlePig embarked on getting a proper Kosher certification for its WhistlePig PiggyBack Rye. Whiskey Biz is available now at retailers nationwide for a suggested price of $4.99-5.49. 

My Take

I mean... ice cream... whiskey... Ben and Jerry's... what could possibly be better? And as an added bonus, the cocktail sounds amazing. This is a no-brainer, if you see this in the store, buy it and let me know what you think in the comment box below!
