If there’s one name in bourbon that is sure to turn heads, it’s Pappy Van Winkle. It’s notoriously hard to find (especially when it comes to the higher age statements), and if you do happen upon a bottle it can cost you as much as the down payment on a car. Even though Pappy is supposed to be more accessible this year, don’t expect to be able to stroll into your local liquor store and pick up a bottle for anything that resembles a reasonable price. Pappy is expensive for a reason, and that won’t change much just because some extra cases are going out.
One bright spot has been Huckberry’s annual Pappy Day. Now in its ninth year, the retailer gives away a bottle of 23 Year Pappy Van Winkle to one lucky person who spends $75 or more on one day and one day only. And this year, Cool Material partnered with Huckberry to double your odds and give away an additional bottle of the coveted Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon.
On November 22, 2022, every order on Huckberry of $75 or more is a ticket to win a bottle of Pappy. That’s an easy target to hit — especially for anyone who doesn’t already own a Proof 72-Hour Merino Tee, Flint & Tinder Waxed Trucker Jacket, or Shinola Runwell Field Watch. Simply put, there are loads of things at Huckberry that you’ve probably already had your eye on for some time now, whether it’s quality Rhodes boots, everyday pants, or any of the many home products. Or you could stick with the whiskey theme and buy some Pappy products and Whiskey Peaks glasses (the latter is even 35 percent off on Pappy Day to sweeten the deal).
It’s a win-win: You have an excuse to stock up on some Huckberry gear (for yourself or for gifting), and you also have the chance of being picked for a bottle (no shame in keeping that one for yourself if you’re chosen). The hardest part may just be waiting until November 25 when the winner is announced.
