In about a week—September 21 if you’re seriously interested—the Speed Art Museum in Louisville, Kentucky, will host its first annual online and live bourbon auction with a prestigious list of  hard-to-find bourbons. “The Art of Bourbon” will be one of the premier, national, nonprofit bourbon auctions because of the bottles being auctioned off—but no single bottle has us more excited than the 10th bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 23 Year Old ever produced. Yes, you read that correctly. The already extremely rare Pappy Van Winkle 23 Year Old, which regularly fetches more than two grand a bottle if you can even pull the money out of your wallet fast enough to bid on it, has an even rarer alternative that this auction gives you the chance to bid on. This is the 10th bottle of PVW 23 produced. It was given to Julian Van Winkle (Pappy’s grandson) personally, and was distilled and bottled in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, because the Van Winkle operation moved to the current Buffalo Trace operation in Frankfort. As if that wasn’t reason enough to raise your card, bottles 7, 8, and 9 have already been consumed, and the Van Winkle family owns bottles 1 – 5. That means this is the oldest, non-Van Winkle family bottle in existence, which means it’s probably going to fetch more than the $20,000 it’s valued at.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
