$26 000 of Worlds Best Bourbon Stolen from Distillery

The famous Kentucky’s Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery suffered a great loss after the theft that deprived Julian Proctor Van Winkle III and his son, Julian Preston Van Winkle, of approximately $26.000. Their distillery is currently producing the most valuable bourbon from all over the world, providing high-class people with bottles of the 20-year-old Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve furtively. For people who are seeking the magical bourbon made by the Kentucky’s Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery, ther is only bad news: the chances of finding the 20-year Pappy bottles are minimal.


However, after decades of secret 20-year Pappy bottles distribution, the Distillery was broken into, and the thieves have stolen 195 20-year Pappy bottles and approximately nine cases of 13-year-old rye. The total loss is estimated to reach at least $26,000, given that the street value is even higher. Even though the actual price of a 20-year Pappy bottle is retailed for only $130, the thieves can demand $400 per bottle, meaning that their earnings will reach more than $78,000.
