Early Pappy Games Begin

For all of those who cannot get Pappy Van Winkle when they want it, I offer you the following…..

1991 Jefferson’s 18 Year Old Reserve Kentucky Bourbon $75.99 (elsewhere $90 - $100) - Everyone wants the Van Winkle whiskey – the legendary Stitzel Weller Bourbon from the now-defunct distillery.  Unbeknownst to most people, there are other ways of getting it besides directly from the Van Winkles.  Willett has put out a few casks of SW over the last few years, and we’ve been lucky enough to work with Jefferson’s as well.  Now, the time as finally come when that finite supply of SW Bourbon has run dry.  There are no more single barrels to purchase and Jefferson’s is putting together the last of what they have in stock into this 18 year old batch.  It IS chill-filtered and it is not from a single barrel, but it is Stitzel Weller Bourbon and it is delicious.  It’s rich, full of spice, and most importantly – it’s about $15 to $25 cheaper than other places.  We snagged the last 210 bottles available at the distributor. 

We will be getting more SW Bourbon from Willett later this year, but it will be cask strength and 20 years old.  It will also be at least $100 MORE per bottle, so around $180 or so.  We will also be getting more Pappy in the next few weeks, but only about 12 bottles of the 20.  This is the LAST, best chance to get what you need at a reasonable price.  Use the link and take what you need

UPDATE: We've sold over 100 in the first hour.  These WILL sell out by 3PM PST.
