About Pursuit of Pappy

  1. Pursuit of Pappy is first and foremost an informational website. But members are allowed to offer, sell and buy almost anything related to bourbon and spirit-related antiquities amongst themselves. Pursuit of Pappy is not an auctioneer, but we may use an auction as a pricing mechanism. The actual transaction takes place between the Sellers and Buyers and it is up to them to work out the details, including, delivery costs, etc. The actual contract for sale, if one exists, is directly between the Sellers and Buyers and in connection with each transaction, Buyer and Seller jointly and severally represent that they will purchase and receive all Products in compliance with all applicable laws, including, without limitation, the alcoholic beverage control laws of the jurisdiction in which you reside, and that such Products will be used only in a lawful manner.
  2. While we may make use of an “auction” to price a collector bourbon, like Pappy Van Winkle such guidance is solely informational and you may decide to follow it or not.
