On October 15, it was announced that 65 cases of Pappy Van Winkle 20-year and 9 cases of Pappy Rye had gone missing. Considered one of the best (and rarest) bourbons, Pappy Van Winkle 20-year is selling on Craigslist for $650+ a bottle, and is nearly impossible to find off the internet

This afternoon in a press conference, the Franklin County Sheriff's department gave us an update to Pappygate. A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest in the case of this stolen bourbon.  According to the Daily Journal, Sheriff Pat Melton said that the reward could provide a "heck of a Christmas" for whoever provides information leading to an arrest in Pappygate. 

Over 100 people have been questioned about the theft. The missing whiskey is valued at over $26,000. It is a suspected inside job.
