About Old Rip Van Winkle 25 year Bourbon

  • Only 710 Bottles released worldwide to retailers
  • The barrels in which this bourbon aged are original stock from the Old Pappy Van Winkle Distillery.
  • The Bourbon was distilled in the spring and fall of 1989 and stored on the lower levels of a metal clad warehouse built in 1935 at the Van Winkle family distillery in Shively, Kentucky. In 2002 the barrels were moved to Buffalo Trace Distillery, where they continued to age for another 12 years on the lower floors in Buffalo Trace’s brick warehouses.
  • The packaging is handmade glass from the Glencairn Crystal Studio. Each and every one is numbered, with a silver stopper. The wooden boxes are crafted with the staves from those magic 11 barrels, and they’re each signed by Julian Van Winkle.
