Old Rip Van Winkle 12 Year Old Handmade Bourbon

An interesting bottle of Old Rip Van Winkle, the pre-prohibition whisky brand retained by the Van Winkle family following the sale of Stitzel-Weller distillery and its associated products in 1972.

Julian Van Winkle III continued bottling Stizel-Weller produced bourbon at Hoffman Distillery in Lawrenceburg in the early 1980's. This 12 year old bourbon would would have been produced using Stitzel-Weller stock, some of the last, considering the fact the distillery had closed down several years before bottling.

Japanese import.
