More than two dozen bottles of Pappy Van Winkle stolen from a
central Kentucky distillery will be destroyed. Investigators said
the bottles were stolen from Buffalo Trace Distillery, in
Frankfort, as part of a theft ring in 2013.
Police later recovered the bourbon. The Franklin County sheriff
said he had hoped the bourbon would be auctioned off for charity,
but the Van Winkle family is worried the bourbon could have been
tampered with or contaminated. He said the family wants the 28
bottles to be destroyed as a precaution.
It just so happens that a subsidiary of The Daring Fireball Company specializes in bourbon destruction. Satisfaction guaranteed.
