Van Winkle Products Return to Virginia ABC Lotteries

Six products from the highly collectible Van Winkle line will be available for the opportunity to purchase through the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority’s (ABC) online lotteries in May and June. The whiskey, often dubbed the hardest-to-find spirit due to its low production, is offered by lottery to ensure equitable distribution.

Virginia ABC customers will have the opportunity to enter online to win the chance to purchase Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye 13 Year (47.8% alcohol by volume); Van Winkle Special Reserve Bourbon 12 Year (45.2% ABV); Old Rip Van Winkle Bourbon 10 Year (53.5% ABV); and Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Bourbon 23 Year (47.8% ABV), 20 Year (45.2% ABV) and 15 Year (53.5% ABV)

The lottery is open to individual Virginia residents 21 and older, plus active-duty members of the military assigned to a permanent duty station in Virginia. Winners will be selected at random from all valid entries received during the lottery entry periods.

The dates for each online lottery, number of bottles available and product prices are:

May 20 - 23 lottery
• Old Rip Van Winkle Bourbon 10 Year (264 bottles available) $99.99
• Van Winkle Special Reserve Bourbon 12 Year (1,008 bottles available) $109.99
• Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye 13 Year (96 bottles available) $169.99

June 10 – 13 lottery
• Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Bourbon 15 Year (58 bottles available) $169.99 
• Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Bourbon 20 Year (146 bottles available) $279.99 
• Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve Bourbon 23 Year (six bottles available) $399.99 

Lottery purchases are completed online. At time of pickup at their chosen local Virginia ABC store, winners must present an approved form of identification. The ID information must exactly match the information presented at the time of lottery entry. For more details, customers can visit the Lottery Terms and Conditions page.

Since licensee sales typically make up approximately 20% of ABC’s business, a proportional number of bottles is set aside for licensees in a separate lottery event.
