About Old Rip Van Winkle
In 1893, Julian Pappy Van Winkle Sr. began working as a traveling salesman for the W.L. Weller & Sons Company in Louisville, Kentucky. Weller & Sons was a liquor wholesaler and sold bourbon under various labels, including Old Fitzgerald and Rebel Yell. After the turn of the century, Van Winkle purchased Weller & Sons Co., together with the Stitzel Distillery, which produced most of the bourbons sold by the wholesaler, and merged the two companies. While Prohibition forced most distilleries to close their doors, Van Winkle was granted a license to continue operating his distillery and producing whiskey for medicinal purposes. By the time of his death at the age of 91 in 1966, Van Winkle was the oldest active distiller in the country.
There are not many things more American than bourbon, and although most of it is produced in Kentucky, it can be produced all over the USA.
It must be made with at least 51% corn and bottled at 40% ABV or higher. So why not give this American classic a try?
