Pappy Made By the Pappy

 

So you think you're a baller because you've got a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 20 year old?  Please......

If you want to roll out to your next party in style, you show up with one of these bottles and you say, nonchalantly, "I only drink Stitzel Weller whiskey made when the Pappy himself was still running the show."  Then you pull out this 1948 bottle of Old Fitzgerald that was bottled in 1956, toss the valet your keys, and smirk in the most arrogant way possible.

There are only a few of these left.  We sold one yesterday, and David OG and I are each buying one for our personal tasting groups.  Pappy Van Winkle whiskey - literally.

1948 Very Old Fitzgerald 8 Year Old Kentucky Bourbon $999.99Distilled entirely in 1948 and bottled in 1956, this bourbon comes from the legendary Stitzel-Weller distillery when the Van Winkle family was still distilling. This is one of the most historically imporant American whiskies on the market today. Finding a bottle is nearly impossible and quantities are extremely limited. This is the REAL Van Winkle whiskey so you know it won't last long.
