Pappy & Company and Heritage Handcrafted are first to repurpose Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery bourbon barrels to create limited-edition gift boxes, marking a historic collaboration between the two legacy brands.
Louisville, Kentucky (PRWEB) July 10, 2014
Pappy & Company and Heritage Handcrafted have partnered to release a limited-edition Pappy Van Winkle Signature Gift Set, crafted with reclaimed bourbon barrel wood used to produce the world-famous Pappy Van Winkles Family Reserve bourbon. The gift sets are now available exclusively on the Pappy & Company website.
A First for Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery:
Each gift set features an individually numbered box that was handmade using reclaimed wood staves. These staves, the narrow strips of wood that form the sides of a barrel, are from the world-renowned Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky marking a first for the distillery. The barrels were originally used for aging Pappy Van Winkles Family Reserve 23-year and 20-year bourbon (called the most popular bourbon on earth by Louisville Magazine and the bourbon so popular even billionaires cant find it by the Wall Street Journal).
Each gift set also includes:
A Historic Collaboration:
This marks the first collaboration between Pappy & Company and Heritage Handcrafted, two iconic, tradition-steeped brands.
We wanted to work with a designer who could authentically merge the history of Pappy with the fine detail we are known for, said Carrie Van Winkle, who co-founded Pappy & Company with her sisters Louise and Chenault Van Winkle. The women are great-granddaughters of Julian P. Pappy Van Winkle, Sr. Pappy & Company offers dry goods and wares for the bourbon lifestyle.
Family tradition was also top of mind for Heritage Handcrafted, the nations leading designer and manufacturer of handcrafted furniture and gifts made from reclaimed whiskey and bourbon barrels. I wanted to create a memento that merged the great histories of our two companies, inspired nostalgia and could be passed down through generations, said James Broyhill, founder and lead designer of Heritage Handcrafted and great-grandson of the founder of Broyhill Furniture Industries.
Limited in production to only 250 and individually numbered, these highly exclusive gift sets will never be reproduced. The Pappy Van Winkle Signature Gift Set is available exclusively online at PappyCo.com at a price of $825.
