How to Participate

Pennsylvania residents and licensees have until 5:00 PM on Friday, Feb. 16, to opt in to the lotteries and/or drawings. To participate, visit the Limited-Release Lottery web page at FWGS.com.

Two Separate Lotteries

There will be two separate lotteries for the limited-release whiskeys. Participants can choose to opt in to one or both of these lotteries and related drawings.

Buffalo Trace Antique Collection 2023 Release

The first lottery will feature 513 bottles from the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection (BTAC). These bourbons are aged for at least 15 years and are extremely popular. Due to limited production numbers, the demand for these whiskeys exceeds the supply.

Winning entries in this lottery are limited to one bottle per participant. If a participant wins a bottle in a drawing within this lottery, they will be removed from subsequent drawings. The retail price for each 750 milliliter bottle in this collection is $124.99.

The available whiskeys in the BTAC lottery are:

  • Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey 18 Year Old – 16 bottles for individual consumers, five for licensees
  • Eagle Rare Straight Bourbon 17 Year Old – 16 bottles for individual consumers, five for licensees
  • William Larue Weller Straight Bourbon Barrel Proof – 57 bottles for individual consumers, 18 for licensees
  • George T. Stagg Straight Bourbon Barrel Proof – 133 bottles for individual consumers, 44 for licensees
  • Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey Barrel Proof – 165 bottles for individual consumers, 54 for licensees

The Van Winkle Lottery

The second lottery will feature 1,383 bottles of Kentucky whiskeys produced by Pappy Van Winkle's grandson. These whiskeys are made using recipes dating back four generations and are highly sought after worldwide. The 20-year-old bourbon from Van Winkle has received exceptional ratings from Wine Enthusiast magazine and the World Spirits Championship.

Similar to the BTAC lottery, winning entries in the Van Winkle lottery are limited to one bottle per participant. If a participant wins a bottle in a drawing within this lottery, they will be removed from subsequent drawings. The retail price for each bottle in this collection will be announced.

Conclusion

Don't miss your chance to purchase these rare whiskeys through the Limited-Release Lottery. Visit FWGS.com before Feb. 16 to opt in and participate in the lotteries. Good luck!
