Franklin County Sheriff's office is offering a $10,000 reward for information in the case of the missing Pappy Van Winkle bourbon from the Buffalo Trace Distillery.

The missing bourbon is valued at more than $26,000.  It was noticed missing in mid-October.

 
Sheriff Pat Melton says his team has interviewed more than 100 people.

"When you interview that many people, the process of elimination, and there are continuing leads that we have been getting throughout this entire investigation," said Melton.  "I think our focus is narrowing down on some folks."

Corner Liquor in Lexington says they are very aware of the missing, rare bourbon.  Dezeree Garvin is a clerk at the store.  She says it is illegal for liquor stores to buy alcohol from anyone except a distributor but she believes, because of the high profile of this missing bourbon, it will be sold on the Internet.

"Honestly with something that expensive, they would definitely use a higher profile but then you also have to think of the side of them getting found out or exploited because they are selling it on the internet," said Garvin.

“With all the attention that this has gained all over the country, it's making it extremely hot to try to move and sell right now,” said Melton.
