Preston Van Winkle

Frankfort, KY Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery

Preston Van Winkle is the fourth generation member of the Van Winkle family exploring his father’s bottling hall and barrel warehouse in Lawrenceburg, KY, occasionally helping with the bottling and labeling. After graduating from the University of Kentucky in 2001 he immediately started working for his father. In 2002, the Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery partnered with the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, KY, freeing up Julian and Preston from production duties enabling them to focus on the sales and marketing of the brands. Preston assumed the role of Marketing Manager for Old Rip Van Winkle and has worked since then to help manage and market the Van Winkle brands.
