Larry Swanson
Steward of The Brand, Vermont
Larry Swanson

After learning about WhistlePig Larry hitchhiked from his home state of Michigan to Shoreham, VT. Within days, he was pushing a broom in the farm’s drafty warehouses for room, board, and rye. The company’s leadership soon recognized that Larry’s technique was more befitting of a salesman, and the following year he was promoted to Vermont’s Steward of the Brand. Larry enjoys reading, hiking and beekeeping — all of them, naturally, with whiskey in hand.
