Beyond the Name

Originally intended for the Japanese markets, this extremely rare edition of Old Rip Van Winkle Handmade 90 Proof 16 year old Bourbon is part of Winkle’s Family Reserve series and was first barreled in 1974 and bottled in 1990. Estimated to have been sourced and distilled at the Boone distillery originally established in Petersburg KY in 1833, Winkle 16 Handmade 90 Proof bourbon is composed of an undisclosed mash bill and aged a minimum of 16 years in undisclosed casks. Ultra-rare and beyond highly collectible, this mythical bourbon is a once-in-a-lifetime quaff that is truly at the elite level for any authentic rare-liquor enthusiast.

These original bottles of Boone-distilled Van Winkle reserves are incredibly rare and sought after in equal measure.

Fun fact: Van Winkle has stated that he "got away" with using dripping red wax here as Maker's Mark only held the trademark in the US & not overseas.
