There once was a time, not too far long ago, where the sight of seeing bottles of Pappy Van Winkle on the retail shelf was not an impossible occurrence.
I remember a couple of my weekend trips to the liquor store; I would see a bottle of 23-year-old Pappy in the glass cabinet, the honest retail price of $250—left untouched for weeks.
And I remember being able to score a bottle of Old Rip Van Winkle for $45 with no problem. They would stock every other week.
But now, as you know, it’s a different time.
The hysteria, allure, and mysticism have not worn off but only intensified.
This is a GIF of those good old times—captured in an infinite loop. The fine times before the boom. This is a GIF extracted from a video I filmed on April 14, 2012, at 11:57 PM EST.
This work captures a bottle of Pappy Wan Winkle Family Reserve 15, acquired on a casual trip to a liquor store, purchased for about $90 with a snifter glass rolling back-and-forth, forever.
