product Details

Very Old Fitzgerald 1962 Bonded 8 Year Old Half Pint / Stitzel-Weller

We don't see vintage Old Fitzgerald very often, so we are particularly excited about this bottle which was distilled in the Spring of 1962 and bottled in Spring 1970.

Distilled at the legendary Stitzel-Weller distillery while it was under the management of Julien 'Pappy' Van Winkle I, and bottled a few years after his death by his son, Julien Van Winkle II.

Stitzel-Weller was eventually sold in 1972, with the Van Winkle family departing the business in the process. The 'A Collectors Item' label affixed to the shoulder therefore representing an incredible piece of foresight.
