The Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority (ABC) will offer the opportunity to purchase several highly collectible whiskeys by online lottery in February.
From Feb. 12-14, customers will be able to enter for the opportunity to purchase O.F.C. Bourbon 1994 Vintage ($2,499.99) and Double Eagle Very Rare Bourbon ($1,999.99). Both products come in hand-cut crystal bottles with specialty boxes for storage.
Later in February, Virginia ABC will hold a lottery for a previously distillery-release-only Virginia product and a bourbon named for the grandnephew of Jim Beam, Baker Beam. From Feb. 26-28, customers will be able to enter for the opportunity to purchase Catoctin Creek Rabble Rouser Rye ($95.99) and Baker’s Single Barrel 13 Year Bourbon ($99.99).
“As we look to consistently expand and improve our lottery program, we find new opportunities and products,” said Travis Hill, Virginia ABC chief executive officer. “We’re excited to offer some very rare products and to partner with a Virginia distillery for lotteries this month.”
Each lottery entry form will be available for three days. Winners will be selected at random in a drawing from all valid entries received during the lottery entry period. All entries received during each three-day entry period will have an equal opportunity to win. The lottery is open to Virginia residents only, and winners must present a valid Virginia photo ID at the time of purchase.
All lottery entries must include the store number and address where the bottle should be delivered for customer purchase and pick up. Lottery entrants are encouraged to determine this location before submitting their entry. The lottery forms and the full terms and conditions are available at www.abc.virginia.gov/products/limited-availability
