Calling all bourbon aficionados: If you've been waiting for your chance to add an exclusive bottle of Old Rip Van Winkle to your collection, this just may be it — if you have more than a few grand to spare.
Cincinnati-based online auctioning company Everything But The House has a particularly hot item available this week: an Old Rip Van Winkle Family Reserves Special Edition 23-year-old bourbon.
According to the listing, "the wheated-bourbon recipe was distilled at the legendary Stitzel-Weller distillery, aged in barrels specifically chosen by Preston Van Winkle and Julian Van Winkle III then bottled at a strength of 114 proof in the spring of 1986."
But you're not just bidding on the exclusive bourbon, which comes in a crystal decanter numbered 309 out of 1200; you're also bidding on the package, which includes the original presentation box and two etched Glencairn crystal glasses.
The current bid for the item is $7,600 with 104 bids. The auction continues until Sunday, July 28 at 6:24 p.m.
