The Ranch at Las Colinas is hosting an exclusive Pappy Van Winkle dinner on Saturday, October 19 from 6:30 p.m. – 10 p.m. Pappy Van Winkle is a highly sought after and difficult to find bourbon brand with some bottles selling in the thousands. The distillery only releases product once a year, leading many retailers to have a waiting list or use a lottery for customers wanting to get their hands on a bottle. It is often regarded as one of the best bourbons in the world.
Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle’s philosophy has been to put product before profit – a core value maintained for decades. All of Pappy Van Winkle’s bourbons are distilled with corn, barley and wheat which allows the whiskey to age more gracefully and gives it a smoother taste. The brand has won countless awards including a 99 rating from the Beverage Testing Institute for the 20-year-old Pappy Van Winkle in 1996 which was the highest rating it had ever given and was key to making the bourbon even more sought after.
The Ranch at Las Colinas will begin the evening at 6:30 p.m. with cocktails featuring Sazerac, Rye Old Fashioned and Manhattan. The dinner will begin promptly at 7 p.m. with a four-course dinner created by Chef de Cuisine Mark Daverio. Each course will be served with a straight pour of Pappy Van Winkle including the 10-year, 12-year, 15-year, 20-year and 23-year bourbon labels. The dinner is available for $375 per person, tax and gratuity not included.
Charles Leon, Managing Partner of The Ranch at Las Colinas says “It’s difficult enough to find one of the Pappy Van Winkle labels and we will be supplying all five at this dinner. This is a rare opportunity to get a taste of all Pappy Van Winkle has to offer.”
After dinner, at 9 p.m., cigars and drinks will be available in a private space for guests of the dinner. Post-dinner cigars and drinks are not included in the price.
