ABS Announces the Spirits Available in High-Demand Lottery

The county’s Alcohol Beverage Services department has announced the list of products that will be a part of the lotteries announced last week for limited-availability, high-demand spirits.

A total of 378 bottles will be available to customers for purchase in the lotteries, one of which will be held for county residents only and a separate one for state residents.

County residents will be able to take a chance to buy products including five different ages of Pappy Van Winkle ranging in price from $69.99 to $299.99, as well as a six-bottle set for $894.94; all are 750ml bottles.

Other choices include four different Weller whiskeys at various prices,  an 18-year-old Sazerac Rye ($99.99) up to a single available bottle of Double Eagle Very Rare Bourbon selling for $1,999.99.

County residents may also enter the lottery for state residents, which has a similar list of available bottles.

“ABS is able to procure items that neighboring jurisdictions cannot get, or get very little of, and we offer them at fair pricing to give people access,” Kent Massie, ABS retail chief said in a press release. “You just do not see this happening elsewhere locally.”

Each resident entering the lottery will be able to select their top preferences from the list of bottles available, according to the release. Bottle counts are listed on the registration forms.

Lottery registration begins at noon on Sunday, April 3. Consumers will have until 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, April 9, to enter the lotteries.

After each lottery closes, a random drawing will be conducted and the winning numbers will be posted online at noon on Monday, April 18. Winners will be able to purchase their bottles from a designated store from Friday, April 22, through Sunday, May 1.
