Special Arrival: Van Winkle Bourbons





We are happy to announce the long awaited arrival of the Old Rip Van Winkle line. Just in time for the holidays, bring some class and sophistication to your Thanksgiving, or impress the relatives with an extraordinary Christmas gift. The Rip Van Winkle line is the most sought after and critically acclaimed line of Bourbon in the world and the secret lies in the use of wheat instead of rye in the mash. Wheated Bourbons tend to be softer and smoother on the palate and are said to age more gracefully. New in:

Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year 107 proof Bourbon
-The youngest in the line of Bourbons, this one packs quite a punch being bottled at barrel proof and yet delivers on the subtle poise and complexity synonymous with Van Winkle Bourbons.

Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 year Bourbon
-This Bourbon strikes a perfect balance between age and bottle proof. Due to it's well integrated sweet and smooth character it can give any fine Cognac a run for it's money. In 2008 it won the "Best in Class Gold Medallion"at the International Wine and Spirit Competition and was also awarded a "Trophy for Worldwide Whiskey".

Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 15 year Bourbon
-"The second highest rated bourbon in the world" (World Spirit Championships), the highest rated is its big brother Pappy Van Winkle 20 year in case you were wondering. This 15 year Bourbon also received an inconceivable 98 out of 100 by the Beverage Tasting Institute in Chicago. My suggestion buy it while you can.

Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 23 year Bourbon
-The absolute most limited quantity Bourbon of the entire line. Received a 99 out of 100 from both the Beverage Tasting Institute and the World Spirits Championships. Doesn't get much better my friends.

Unfortunately due to the extremely limited quantities we will not be able to ship these. Come and get it!

Welcome to Bourbon Country!


Here at Healthy Spirits we've been on a mission lately to bring you some of the rarest and best Bourbons in the world. Bourbon is a unique spirit which is recognized as a distinctly American product, Scotland has it's Scotchs, France has it's Cognacs and Armagnacs(amoung others), Mexico has it's Tequilas and here in the States we have that sweet brown Kentucky nectar known as Bourbon. Bourbon's distinct flavor comes from the large amount of corn used in the mash(51% or greater), as well as the combination of rye, barley and/or wheat. It is this use of 3-4 ingredients in different ratios that allows for such a tapestry of different flavors. Not surprising many believe that Bourbon is the most skillfully crafted spirit in the world. Anyone thristy yet?

Without further ado here's some of the new Bourbons we just recieved:

George T. Stagg 16yr -An extremely hearty whiskey. Stagg is bottled at barrel proof and unfiltered. Powerful and intense with notes of toffee, molasses, vanilla and coffee.

William Larue Weller 11yr - Wheated Bourbon bottled at Barrel Proof and unfiltered. Nose of pepper, oak, caramel corn, leather, plum and pipe tobacco. Flavors are astoundingly rich with honey, marshmallows, sauteed almonds, nougat, figs and dates .

Eagle Rare 17yr - Recently recieved 96 pts from Wine Enthusiast. An amazingly smooth combination of molasses, leather, vanilla, violet and toffee.

Thomas H. Handy 7yr Rye - Intense Rye Whiskey bottled at Barrel Proof and unfiltered. Notes of allspice, pepper, dried fruit, tobacco and a touch of cinnamon.

Sazerac 18yr
Rye - Enormous in every respect, from its thick, chewy texture to its unbelievably spicy and powerful flavors. Notes of mint, eucalyptus, cinnamon, vanilla, molasses, oak, leather, and lingering pepper.


Can we do some shots already? Anyway most of these are extremely limited quantities, so get em while you can, or before I drink them. I also have a couple Pappy Van Winkle 23yr left in addition to some other great single barrel Bourbons you can find on our new Bourbon Menu:

This time we have decided it's only fair to keep the bottles for in-store sale only, so the locals can have a shot at them. If we recieve more of these in the future, we will open them back up to shipping.
