Limited Edition Authentic Old Rip Van Winkle 10-year Barrel Head

  • If it seems like a somewhat magical process - whereby bourbon is aged within the walls of an oak barrel - held together merely by pressure and iron bands - then the secrets are surely held within the wood. Once retired, these barrels still retain the remnants of this mythical process, the markings, the striations, and the discoloration that occur while the bourbon ages tell the story - just as aroma continues to linger as the wood dries out.

    Once retired, our genuine Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Barrels are deconstructed, lovingly restored and given a new life. As unique and rare as the bourbon they aged, the Barrel Heads are lasered with the corresponding iconic 10-Year Old Rip Van Winkle label and hand-signed by Julian Van Winkle. Just as no sip is the same, each barrel head is completely unique and the individual details honor the legacy and history of Pappy Van Winkle. 

    Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity recognizing the genuine nature of the barrel head as well as the batch year of the bourbon. Each barrel head also has a felt backing to display the ultimate collector’s item safely on a coffee table or bar. If you choose to hang your barrel head, we suggest one of our Bourbon Barrel Hoop Frames or a D-ring kit.

Totally Awesome….

I have been watching for a couple years to be able to get a chance for purchasing this limited edition barrel head. I feel very fortunate for getting a chance to buy one. It looks awesome with our collection of Buffalo Trace bourbons.

This is an absolutely brilliant piece of art and excellent conversation starter that I proudly display in my bar.
