    Van Winkle Rye

    Anybody know when the newest batch of Van Winkle Rye is slated to hit the market? I recall hearing something 6 months or so ago about it becoming available in July. Just wondering if this is still the plan.

    We plan to bottle the '05 rye in July. It should start trickling out to states during the month & into August.
    You can tell it's the new bottling by the "G" before the number at the top of the label.

    John,
    Is any of this going to be available in Pennsylvania?

    I sure hope so. It's not listed, yet. I'll keep an eye on it.

    We just finally bottled the 13-year rye last week, so it will be in stores within a month.
    Sorry, we do not have enough to ship any to PA.

    It should taste the same as the last Frankfort bottling, last year, with an "F" on the label.

    Thanks for the update Julian. This really is my all-time favorite whiskey, and I look forward to this new expression.

    That's fantastic news
    I doubt any will make its way to the Australian distributor if bottle numbers are limited, so I'll keep an eye out for it online at places like Binnys.
