Bourbon Barons: Pappy Van Winkle

Come with us as we travel back in time to discuss the early bourbon baron Julian P. “Pappy” Van Winkle.

After a Kentucky Proud lunch, we will finish at Justins’ House of Bourbon, Lexington’s premiere vintage bourbon bar. While there, we will fulfill every bourbon drinker’s bucket list with a full flight of “Pappy” and “Van Winkle” products.
