K&L Spirits Podcast #21 - J. Preston Van Winkle

 

Seeing that we're getting towards the end of Fall when the bi-annual release of Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon hits the marketplace, I thought it would be fun to discuss the whole extravaganza with one of the actual Van Winkles.  There has never been a greater demand for these whiskies, and the short supply has only sent enthusiasts into an absolute frenzy.  Preston, son of Julian, and great-grandson of "Pappy," sits down with me to discuss the history of the Stitzel-Weller distillery, the extent of Buffalo Trace in the newer releases, and how to keep scrambling customers as happy as possible.
