The first release of Van Winkle Family Rye that was distilled at the Medley distillery in Owensboro, Kentucky, in 1998 that was for Japanese export only. The first US release was not until 1999. After 1998, all Van Winkle Reserve Rye bottle numbers were preceded with a letter to signify they were US releases. This particular rye was bottled in 1998, which is unique, as that was a period when Van Winkle bottled in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, before they moved their operations to Frankfort, KY in 2002. Additionally this is a rare "green glass" bottle, as Van Winkle's last year of using handmade green glass for their bottles was 1999.
