More Pappy Van Winkle bottles will soon be in stock for sale, but theres a catch
A wooden box created by Heritage Handcrafted completes the package; it's made with oak staves from the 11 barrels that held the bourbon as it was aging, and a metal plaque on its exterior commemorates the time that the liquid spent "asleep 25 years in the wood." Inside is a bourbon certificate of authenticity, numbered and signed by Julian Van Winkle, grandson of the original Julian P. "Pappy" Van Winkle, Sr., who founded the distillery.
"This is a once-in-a-lifetime offering," Van Winkle said of the 710 bottles, which will begin shipping spring.
The retail price is set at $1,800 but as soon as it hits the secondary market, it is expected people will be selling it for $3000 to $6000.
