Stop The Panic! Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery Is Shipping More Product Next Week

If your local bartender is a bit short on Van Winkle whiskies, don’t worry any more. The Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery  promises more will be on the way to “select stores”  as mentioned on their facebook page. If you don’t believe them go and take a peak on their distillery web cams.

The Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery has a four generation history. The Van Winkle family’s involvement in the bourbon industry began in the late 1800s with Julian P. “Pappy” Van Winkle, Sr. Recently, the Van Winkles entered into a joint venture with the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, KY. All of the Van Winkle’s whiskey production now takes place at Buffalo Trace under the same strict guidelines the family has always followed in order to produce a superior quality product.
Aside from the rich family history, Van Winkle bourbons are special for another important reason, their recipe. All of the Van Winkle bourbons are made with corn, wheat, and, barley instead of corn, rye and, barley. This “wheated” recipe gives the bourbon a much softer, smoother taste and it also allows the whiskey to age more gracefully.
