Product Details

An elegant and sweet aroma with caramel corn and vanilla tempts in this Kentucky Bourbon. Big flavors of leather, oak and complex fruitiness are followed by a smooth finish with spice and oak tannins. A younger version of the distillery’s twenty-year-old offering, it was crafted according to the producer’s exclusive wheated recipe. Aged fifteen years in the heart of the aging warehouses in deeply charred new American white oak casks, it remains undisturbed to mellow and age. Bottled at 107 proof, this special whiskey is both smooth and spirit-forward, and won a Bronze medal in 2014 at The Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition.

About the Producer

Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon is distilled and bottled by the Sazerac Company at its Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. The company is named for Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle, Sr., who in 1893 began working as a salesman for the liquor wholesaler W.L. Weller & Sons. Eventually, he and another Weller salesman acquired the A. Ph. Stitzel Distillery in Louisville, Kentucky. The company closed at the start of Prohibition, and was reintroduced in 1972, when the Stitzel-Weller distillery and its current brand names were sold off, and the only brand name to which the Van Winkle family kept the rights was Old Rip Van Winkle. After the initial sale in 1972, the Stitzel-Weller distillery was eventually closed in 1991. Since 2002, the Van Winkle brands have been distilled and bottled by the Sazerac Company at the Buffalo Trace Distillery as a joint venture with the Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery Company. Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve is often regarded as one of the finest Bourbons in the world, and is rare to find on the market due to its very low production and high demand.
