When it comes to getting your hands on Pappy Van Winkle's (PVW) Family Reserve — often regarded as one of the finest Bourbons in the world — you've got to have some grit and wit. Low production + insanely high demand = a cult-like following that's not to be messed with.

This bottling of Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve is aged for 20 years, which makes it incredibly old for a Bourbon. The most iconic of PVW expressions, it's described as intensely sweet and rich with thick vanilla, spice, cinnamon and dark fruit flavors.

Hey, even bad guys know a good Bourbon. Nine Bourbon-bandits were arrested in 2015 for stealing bottles of Pappy from the distillery. Bourbon Rule #243: Never mess with the Cult of Pappy.

"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
Bourbon matures quicker than Scotch due to higher temperatures in American warehouses.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
