This holiday, a few places around the Lexington, KY area will be hosting a Pappy Van Winkle event. Now, why should you go to these particular events if you want to try this bourbon? Let’s just say the average pour is much higher than your other pours.

There are two bars/restaurants that are having a Pappy event that allows people to try that brand of bourbon for a considerable cheaper price. The first is the famous Chevy Chase Inn on Euclid Avenue. They have decided to share their allotted amount of Pappy with their friends. So on Sunday November 18th from 2 pm-5:30 pm they will be selling 1.5 oz pours at an incredible price. Due to there being a specific amount of bourbon, there are rules that need to be followed. You can find all of their information here about this very special day.

The second is the OBC Kitchen on Tates Creek Road. OBC was lucky enough to get one bottle of pappy van winkle with a blurry backgroundVan Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year “Lot B” and they want to share with their customers at a discounted price. In addition to special Van Winkle prices, they will be having a typical happy hour with specialty cocktails, wine, and beer. Along with CCI, they too have instructions and guidelines for this special bourbon day. You can find their rules here.

If you want to splurge a little this holiday and get your own bottle, fear not. 47 participating Kroger Wine & Spirit shops in the Louisville, Lexington, and surrounding areas can help out this holiday. Kroger has 150 bottles and you can enter for the chance to purchase one of them. Some rules and guidelines are that you must be 21 years or older to enter and you may only enter your name once at each Kroger. The contest starts on Friday, November 23 from 4 pm-8 pm and the winners will be drawn on Saturday, November 24 at 9 am. Each winner will have 48 hours to purchase a bottle. There are varying years and prices to choose from.

If you are a bourbon connoisseur and have not had the opportunity to try Pappy Van Winkle, take advantage of these great events. They don’t happen very often.
