Sample Pappy Van Winkle at District One in Las Vegas

Updated February 28, 2018 - 12:22 pm

Few names in American whiskey inspire the same sense of awe as Pappy Van Winkle, or the Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery that produces it; many aficionados go their entire lives without tasting even one of its rare, prized releases. But District One, 3400 S. Jones Blvd., has scored all five of the company’s bourbons (Old Rip Van Winkle 10-year, Van Winkle Special Reserve and Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 15-, 20- and 23-year) and its Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye, and is offering them in flights starting Wednesday. They’ll be $230 for 1/2-ounce pours of all six or $450 for 1-ounce pours, while supplies last.

Cocktail benefit set

The fifth For the Love of Cocktails benefit will be May 18 at Skyfall and Rivea atop the Delano. Tickets go on sale shortly at fortheloveofcocktails.com.

Prime kitchen duty

Two chefs with Las Vegas restaurants will be cooking at the James Beard House in New York this spring. Akira Back, who has Kumi at Mandalay Bay and Yellowtail at Bellagio, will appear in “Globe Trotting Phenom” on March 15. And Lorena Garcia of Chica at The Venetian will present “Vibrant Latin” on April 20. For tickets, go to jamesbeard.org.
