BYCU Addendum. Breaking news in the booze world:
More than $25,000 worth of one of the rarest and most sought-after bourbon’s produced in Kentucky is missing in what investigators believe was an inside job.
About 65 cases of 20-year-old Pappy Van Winkle bourbon were swiped from a secure area at Buffalo Trace Distillery’s Frankfort operations, Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton said.
Melton told The Courier-Journal whoever stole the bourbon walked off with about $26,000 of the limited stock. That’s about $25,350 in 3-bottle cases of 20-year-old Pappy and about $675 in nine cases of 13-year-old Van Winkle Family Reserve rye.
Melton told the Lexington Herald-Leader the bourbon retails for about $130 a bottle and is worth “$300 or $400 a bottle” on the secondary market.
