Whiskey enthusiasts are in for a treat tonight! Union Square Wine & Spirits (140 Fourth Avenue at 13th Street) will be hosting a Pappy New Year event featuring a number of rare offerings from the Buffalo Trace Distillery. The Kentucky-based distillery is one of the oldest continuously-operating distilleries in the U.S., and carries the Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve, often regarded as one of the finest bourbons in the world.

After pleading with our friends at Buffalo Trace, we were able to secure an additional allocation of rarities from the distillery, including bottles of the 20 and 23 year old Pappy Van Winkle. In an effort to give as many of you as possible a chance to enjoy these profound whiskies, we’ll be hosting a special tasting here in the shop and raffling one of these rarities away. Attendees will enjoy a number of delicious Buffalo Trace whiskies, including the Weller’s 12 year Bourbon, Elmer T. Lee, Eagle Rare, the Van Winkle 12 year, and a few other surprises. In addition to the Bourbon, we’ll be serving tasty BBQ from Mighty Quinn’s.
