I had the pleasure of sitting down with Wright Thompson to discuss Pappy Van Winkle, bourbon, children and his new book "Pappyland: A Story of Family, Fine Bourbon, and the Things That Last" yesterday. The man is going 100 miles an hour but his passion for this project shines through when talking about what led him to write this book about the legendary distiller. The book comes out today, November 10 and is already on the Amazon Best-seller list. Click here to secure your copy today or you can head over to https://wrightthompson.com/ and sign up for one of his WIN PAPPY VAN WINKLE RAFFLE EVENTS Hosted by Prairie Lights Books, where you will get the chance to experience Wright Thompson in conversation with Julian Van Winkle III and possibly even walk away with a bottle of the coveted juice itself as a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle will be raffled off at each event. This was my favorite part of this book release as all proceeds go to the The Lee Initiative and their efforts to provide relief to the restaurants and bars that have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. The book is out today, the convervation will be on the Bourbon Showddown Podcast in a few weeks. It was great talking to Mr. Thompson and our glass is up to him as we celebrate his new book.
