League Emmisary, East
Mira Anne Bhakta

When her brother, Raj Peter Bhakta, founded WhistlePig with Master Distiller Dave Pickerell in 2010, Mira was introduced to the wonderful world of whiskey and in 2013 was determined to join the WhistlePig team. Raj challenged Mira to prove how successful she could be in her hometown market of Pennsylvania before offering her a full-time position, and so- teacher by day and WhistlePig enthusiast by night, Mira made an irrefutable impact. Due to her trailblazing success in her market, Mira is now traveling around the East Coast as our Steward of the Brand and Emissary of the League, where she shares the WhistlePig story from her uniquely close connection to the brand’s earliest days and through the wondrous journey into one of the most sought after whiskeys in the world. Mira enjoys exploring new cultures, learning languages, spirituality, science, and nature.
