Julian Van Winkle—the owner of Old Rip Van Winkle Distillerysays the distillery is putting away a lot more Pappy Van Winkle bourbon now, and in a few years should have a lot more available to sell.

Van Winkle says, “Nothing’s going to change except more production.” Still, this is huge news for Pappy fans. The bourbon has a serious cult following, and just a few years ago fans would watch the company’s Facebook site to learn when the allotment for their state was about to ship, then race to their local retailer to stake out a bottle. Not anymore.

Van Winkle says the distillery has no plans to extend the line or change their formula, though.
