Talk Is Jericho: Pappygate – The Story Of The Great Bourbon Heist

The Bourbon King Toby Curtsinger was featured on the Netflix documentary Heist for his alleged role in stealing a half million dollars in expensive Pappy Van Winkle bourbon from Buffalo Trace, the Kentucky distillery that he’d worked at since 1988. The case became known as Pappygate! Toby and Jeff Waldridge, who worked in law enforcement in Kentucky at the time, tell Toby’s story in great detail. They outline the culture of the bourbon business, recount all of the events and circumstances leading up to and after Toby’s arrest and conviction, and explain how the highest level of Kentucky politics factored into Toby’s case. Toby maintains his innocence about the missing Pappy Van Winkle bourbon but has plenty of thoughts on theories as to why he was targeted the way he was.
