Description

The 2021 allocation of 2020 Van Winkle and Antique Collection releases is extremely limited, in a lot of cases we received one bottle of each product. Given the demand and waitlist far exceeds supply, we will be offering this series to customer via ballot – one item per customer across the BTAC/Pappy range.

Ballot for the 2020 BTAC and PVW bottles has been drawn and winners have been notified. Thank you and enjoy!

The 2020 William Larue Weller release, part of Buffalo Trace's lauded Antique Collection series.

This was distilled in American’s winter of 2008 and released in fall of 2019 as a 12-year-old. It is released at 134.5 proof, 67.25%.

The Antique Collection series of whiskies are some of the most sought-after whiskies in the world, let alone bourbons, and Australian allocations are very limited.
