However, if you read the biography of Pappy Van Winkle, you would find a different story about John E. Fitzgerald. It’s this story has become the most trusted of origin tales for Fitzgerald. He wasn’t a distiller - bonded treasury agent, one of the only people to carry keys to the storage warehouses where oodles of bourbon matured. It turns out that Fitzgerald had a keen nose for great bourbon, and wasn’t particularly adversed to helping himself to the aforementioned great bourbon. His legend has been honoured in Heaven Hill’s Larceny, a wheated bourbon launched in 2012 that is made with no rye whatsoever, letting the corn’s creamy sweetness sing. Larceny’s current Master Distillery is Denny Potter.
