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.

Imagine, on lucky day out to the liquor store, you can buy a bottle of Pappy 15, Old Rip and a Lot B in a single haul?

Those were the times.

Those were the times when the sight of seeing bottles of Pappy Van Winkle on the retail shelf was not an impossible occurrence.

Now, scoring a bottle can only be a dream for some.
