VAN WINKLE 12 YEARS OF. LOT B 90.4 PROOF SPECIAL RESERVE (70CL.)

THE VINTAGE

Van Winkle 12 year old is a whetated bourbon – a bourbon whose second grain after corn is wheat and not barley as is generally the case – was launched in 1991 by Julian Van Winkle III. He then uses bourbon from the Stitzel-Weller distillery (Lot A). Lot B followed the same year and has not left the range since. This range also includes a 10 year old, a 15 year old, a 20 year old, a 23 year old and a 13 year old rye whiskey. They are now produced by the Buffalo Trace distillery and are among the most sought-after American whiskeys among amateurs.

OLD RIP VAN WINKLE DISTILLERY

Julian P. “Pappy” Van Winkle was a salesman working for WL Weller and Sons. He created the Stitzel-Weller distillery by merging the A. Ph. Stitzel and Weller distilleries. His wheated bourbon recipe – where wheat replaces rye as the second grain – is very successful. It was his son Julian Van Winkle II who resurrected the Old Rip Van Winkle brand using stocks from the distillery, sold in 1972 then closed by United Distillers twenty years later. Julian Van Winkle III therefore turned to Buffalo Trace to continue production, first using the last barrels from Stitzel-Weller then switching to those from Buffalo Trace. By its recipe, its quality and its high age counts, Pappy Van Winkle is considered one of the best bourbons there is. The range includes bourbons aged from 10 years to 25 years and ryes aged 13 years or vintage.
