WhistlePig Whiskey, maker of the whiskey that was voted world’s best, is exploring a sale after receiving takeover interest and has invited potential suitors to submit formal bids, according to people familiar with the situation.

Talks about a sale of the Vermont-based company are in early stages and they may not lead to a deal, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the information is private. A representative for WhistlePig didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
