The Franklin County Sheriff's Office has announced a $10,000 reward in the 'Bourbon Burglary' case.

It began in mid-October when Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton says someone swiped about 65 cases of 20-year-old Pappy Van Winkle bourbon in what appears to be an inside job from a secure area at Buffalo Trace Distillery's Frankfort operations.
    
Melton says whoever stole the bourbon walked off with about $26,000 of the limited stock. That's about $25,350 in 3-bottle cases of 20-year-old Pappy and about $675 in nine cases of 13-year-old Van Winkle Family Reserve rye.
    
Sheriff Melton says the bourbon retails for about $130 a bottle and is worth "$300 or $400 a bottle" on the secondary market.
