Pappy Van Winkle in DC?

I'm new to town and don't know the good liquor stores. Anyone know who carries Pappy Van Winkle when it's released? Preferably in Northwest DC.

  1. I've never looked for it, but Ace Beverage and/or Calvert Woodley would be good places to start. I'd give them a call.

      S & S in Takoma Park on the red line, also a place on Cap Hill on Mass Ave has the 23 year old

    2. I've found it at Modern Liquors at 9th and M. If you can't find it there, I second the recommendation for ACE Beverage.

        1. Go see Steve at Potomac Liquors on M street in Georgetown. Old Glory (practically catty corner from Potomac across M st) serves it at the bar.

          Old Glory
          3139 M St. N.W., Washington, DC 20007

          1. What is it and why did they name if after me?

            - Pappy

              Because you are the maker of the considered best bourbon there is, as well as the hardest to get.

                Also because you look so fetching on the label:


                For those who are interested, I think the next release of Pappy is supposed to happen in October.

                  I think we use the same haberdasher!
