Four generations of Kentucky distilling come to life through this decadent gift set, which features pre-Prohibition label, Old Rip Van Winkle. Before you get to that, take a good whiff of the box – that wood has nursed gallons upon gallons of fine bourbon to fruition when it used to be a barrel.
Each box is handcrafted and individually numbered – there will only ever be 250 of these sets in existence – plus each comes with a personally authenticated, signed note by Julian Van Winkle. Inside, there’s a crystal decanter and two crystal bourbon glasses beautifully hand-blown by the world renowned Glencairn Crystal Studio of Scotland.
The Van Winkles have even thought to supply the perfect complement to any good bourbon – four hand-wrapped Pappy cigars from Esteli, Nicaragua, with a cigar humidor insert lined with ¼” Spanish cedar. A perfect set for the bourbon aficionado. US$825 – allow four weeks from time of order to delivery.
