The little brother of the famed Van Winkle family of whiskies, this 10 year bourbon is a favorite of many true bourbon aficionado. Bottled as close to barrel proof as possible, the distiller adds just a splash of limestone well-water prior to bottling. A unique corn and wheat recipe passed down from Julian P “Pappy” Van Winkle himself along with ten years in American oak barrels gives this bourbon a sweet vanilla nose with deep cherry and oak flavors along with a beautiful spice finish.  

"Sensationally flavorful and deep Bourbon."

Product Details

This Kentucky Bourbon is bottled as closely to barrel proof as possible, as the producer adds just a splash of limestone well-water when the barrels are emptied for bottling. It’s made with a unique recipe passed down from Julian P “Pappy” Van Winkle with a mash bill of corn and wheat, and is aged for ten years in American oak barrels. As smooth a Bourbon as you will find, it’s perfect for sipping neat, and will open up even further with the addition of ice or water.

About the Producer

Old Rip Van Winkle Bourbon is produced in Kentucky at the Buffalo Trace Distillery, a distillery named for the buffalo that carved paths through the wilderness that led America’s first pioneers westward. Situated on the banks of the Kentucky River, the site has had a working distillery since 1787, but the official Buffalo Trace production began in 1857. It obtained one of only four permits offered during Prohibition to maintain production for "medicinal purposes." Today, the distillery sits on a picturesque one hundred nineteen acres that was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2013, and produces several labels of Bourbon.
