If you know your Bourbon, then you know how hard it is to get your hands on a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle. Pappy for a Purpose is a chance to win a full flight of Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve while supporting our mission at the same time. One lucky winner will receive a set of Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve valued at over $18,000, though most consider the flight “priceless” because it has become extremely rare and highly collectable. The flight includes one bottle of each:

  • Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year
  • Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year
  • Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye 13 year
  • Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 15 Year
  • Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 20 Year
  • Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 23 Year
