Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year Old 1990s / Stitzel-Weller

An interesting bottle of Old Rip Van Winkle, the pre-prohibition whiskey brand retained by the Van Winkle family following the sale of Stitzel-Weller distillery and its associated products in 1972.

Julian Van Winkle III continued bottling Stitzel-Weller produced bourbon at Old Commonwealth distillery (previously Hoffman) in Lawrenceburg from the early 1980s until thinning stocks necessitated a partnership with Buffalo Trace in 2002.

This is a rare mid-1990s bottling for the UK market, and one of the first transitions from the squat, dumpy style early bottling, to the tall, slender design we are familiar with today.
