Crowds line up for Pappy Van Winkle in Utah

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Pappy Van Winkle bourbon has made an appearance in Utah.

Crowds formed long lines outside liquor stores in Salt Lake City last night. Everyone waiting had hopes of getting a highly coveted bottle.

Utah's Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control limited one bottle per customer. Some say they started waiting in line as early as 6 a.m.

"I know it's really limited," said one woman who waited in line. "I've done my research, so it's gonna be a rarity if I get my hands on one."

A bottle of Pappy can re-sell online for hundreds -- sometimes even thousands -- of dollars. It all depends on how long the bottle has been aged.
