(FRANKFORT, Ky.) — Cops believe the theft of more than $25,000 worth of a rare Kentucky bourbon was an inside job.

Some 65 cases of 20-year-old Pappy Van Winkle were stolen from the Buffalo Trace distillery in Frankfort, Ky., this week.

Just 6,000 cases of the hooch are distilled a year. A bottle retails for about $130, but can sell for four times that on the secondary market.

Buffalo Trace recently warned customers that production could not keep pace with demand, sending prices and interest in the brand soaring.

No suspects have been named in the theft.
