A bottle of the iconic Old Rip Van Winkle bourbon, bottled at 107 proof in the 2010s. Old Rip Van Winkle was originally made at the Stitzel-Weller distillery, but after its closure in 1992 production moved to Buffalo Trace. The label shows the brand’s namesake: Rip Van Winkle, the main character of a popular children’s story from 1819 (he’s the bearded old man who kind of looks like a wizard). The real-life Van Winkles resurrected their family’s pre-prohibition whisky brand in the 1970s. Whether there’s a connection between them and the character is unclear, but Old Rip sure is an iconic bourbon mascot. The laser code is unreadable, but we date this one to be bottled in the 2010s.
