Just bought the Fortune iPad app this week-- nice article about the Van Winkle business and their production & marketing strategy. For those interested, take a look. Not sure if it's in the printed hard-copy version or not.

Would love to read this! I hope the article will become available for free. I tried Googling it but came up pretty dry :(

Just like my glass... be right back

I've always wanted to try their 20 yr. It's hyped as the best. Last night I had Noah's Mill and that was pretty damn good (review awhiskeydrink.com).

I have an iPad, but not that app. I found the link on cnn.money, but not the full-text.

Thanks for the post though.
Cheers,
Swift

Great video. Thanks for posting darkluna.

I love their philosophy!

In other Van Winkle news, it looks like Preston has put up a proper Facebook page for ORVW. Not many "fans" yet, but I'm sure that will change. It's probably worth subscribing to so that we can see where their special events are. (This article is posted on their wall)

As expected the ORVW 15 was not set up as any of their products.
