Virginia ABC is holding an online lottery for Van Winkle bourbon whiskey


RICHMOND (WFXR) — The Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Authority (ABC) is holding an online lottery in March for a collectible Van Winkle bourbon whiskey.

This line of bourbon whiskey is considered the most difficult to find due to its low production. Customers will be able to enter online for the chance to purchase Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 23, 20 and 15, Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 and Old Rip Van Winkle 10 bourbons.

There will be a raffle draw during the lottery entry period. All entries during each five-day entry period will have a chance to win. This lottery is open to people 21 and older and establishments with mixed drink licenses.

If you are the lucky winner, you must present a valid Virginia photo ID at time of purchase. Name and address must match name and address on winner’s entry.

There will also be a separate drawing for retail customers and licensed customers.

Below are the dates of each online lottery, the number of bottles available and the price:
