Whiskey Worth Stealing?

WORDS: Seamus May PHOTOGRAPHY Supplied

Watch ‘Heist’… Then Taste It!

It’s 2015. Police Officers are closing in on a property that “reeks of Bourbon”. Inside are found 200 bottles of the world’s most sought-after whiskey, a further five barrels of the good stuff and multiple firearms including a pink rifle.

Sounds like something out of a TV show? Well… It is! Netflix’s ‘Heist’ premieres tonight, with episodes 5 and 6 focusing on “The Great Pappy Heist”. We won’t spoil the ending for you, but we can tell you it involves a good deal of Pappy van Winkle, the most elusive and treasured of Kentucky Bourbons.

Want to taste this stuff without stealing it? As luck would have it, Australia’s best loved alcohol subscription service, Whisky Loot has a couple of their very own signature Pappy van Winkle Tasting Packs, perfect for enjoying as you watch the drama unfold. Each pack contains 60ml samples of:
