It's the most sought-after bourbon in the country right now: Pappy Van Winkle's Family Whiskey. From Frankfort, Ky., this small-batch, cult bourbon is nearly impossible to find because the distillery releases only 7,000 bottles per year. But Pappy is turning up in some secret locations this year — and the Flatiron Room in Manhattan is offering an exclusive taste tonight, January 23.
"It's an exquisite bourbon," says Heather Greene, the whiskey sommelier and director of whiskey education at the Flatiron Room. The Flatiron Room just got its supply of Pappy this week, and Greene wants to share it with the world. "It's a combination of really great whiskey that has a lot of depth and character," Greene says. "Combined with its scarcity, that's driving this incredible curiousity behind it — it's created a hype I've never seen in the whiskey world."
The Flatiron Room has 16 available seats for a tasting of Pappy Van Winkle tonight, including a blind taste test of other Kentucky bourbons, for $125. (If that seems like a steep price, consider this: most people say a 2-ounce pour of Pappy will run you at least $65; a bottle of the 23-year-old Pappy Van Winkle runs for at leats $250.) You can get a discount on tickets if you email Greene for a discount code — and these tickets won't last long. (After all, we know how generous you bourbon drinkers are.)
