"We make fine bourbon at a profit if we can, at a loss if we must, but always fine bourbon." "Always fine bourbon" is the driving force behind Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle's four generations of bourbon success. Smathers & Branson considers themselves lucky to be the official needlepoint producers for Pappy Van Winkle, so needless to say this belt is almost as rare as Pappy's fine bourbon.

The Van Winkle family is not exactly sure how their bourbon became so hard to find, but they can offer a reasons as to why that may be. For starters, it is fantastic and when something is that great, you tell others about it so the power of word of mouth is not to be underestimated. Another reason is that the Chicago Beverage Testing Institute gave the bourbon a very high rating which led to numerous awards from tasting competitions both in the states and abroad. That type of advertising cannot be purchased and is very powerful and since then, the legend of Pappy's fine bourbon has only grown and grown.
