Once again, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) is holding a lottery for 1,590 bottles of rare whiskeys, including Pappy Van Winkle.

The Van Winkle Lottery will include Kentucky whiskeys produced by Pappy Van Winkle’s grandson using four-generation-old recipes, which are some of the most sought-after bottles in the world.

The PLCB drawings will be held for the following products in the following order:

  • Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve Straight Bourbon 23 Year Old 95 Proof, $399.99 each – 27 bottles for individual consumers, nine bottles for licensees
  • Van Winkle Family Reserve Straight Rye Whiskey 13 Year Old, $159.99 each – 52 bottles for individual consumers, 17 bottles for licensees
  • Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve Straight Bourbon 20 Year Old 90 Proof, $249.99 each – 81 bottles for individual consumers, 27 bottles for licensees
  • Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve Straight Bourbon 15 Year Old 107 Proof, $149.99 each – 86 bottles for individual consumers, 28 bottles for licensees
  • Old Rip Van Winkle Handmade Straight Bourbon 10-Year-Old 107 Proof, $89.99 each – 237 bottles for individual consumers, 78 bottles for licensees
  • Van Winkle Special Reserve Straight Bourbon 12 Year Old 90 Proof, $99.99 each – 599 bottles for individual consumers, 199 bottles for licensees

Separate drawings will be held for each of the limited-release whiskeys. Participants may opt into one or more of the drawings. Still, each participant may only purchase one bottle, and anyone who is selected in the lottery will be removed from subsequent drawings.

There will also be a separate lottery for a bottle of Old Forester Birthday Straight Bourbon 2022, which costs $159.99. There are 90 bottles available for individual customers and 60 for licensees.

Participants can enter the Van Winkle lottery and the lottery for the Old Forester Birthday Straight Bourbon, and they could win the chance to purchase one product from each of those lotteries.

Consumers and licensees interested in entering the lotteries must have an active account with FWGS.com with billing information on file.

Pennsylvania residents and licensees have until Friday, Nov. 18, at 5 p.m. to opt into one or more of the drawings, which can be done here.
