Anyone with information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the theft of $26,000 worth of the ultrahigh-in-demand Pappy Van Winkle bourbon whiskey is now eligible for a $10,000 reward, Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton announced yesterday at a news conference. "We're just trying to bring Pappy home," he added, and because authorities suspect an inside job, things are likely to be pretty grim and particularly intense around the Buffalo Trace Distillery for the next couple of weeks. Just in time for the holidays. [Courier-Journal, Earlier, Related]
