Lots #3, #5 & #6 - are home to Whistlepig Rye Whiskey.  Whistelpig Rye Whiskey was founded in 2007 when Raj Bhakta purchased a 500-acre farm in Shoreham, VT with the idea of transforming the farm into the first ever single malt, one-stop rye shop, with all stages of the process located on site:  from growing the grass, to distillation, to barreling and aging, to bottling.  In 2017, Whistlepig Rye Whiskey began construction of a multi-phased project at the Moriah Business Park.  The company has constructed seven 14,000 square foot buildings which will largely house all of the whiskey produced in Shoreham, VT for aging.  In 2019 the company added automated bottling operations at the park.
