Cheers to the Ohio Bottle Lottery!

 It's the most wonderful time of the year - the Pappy Van Winkle and Buffalo Trace Antique Collection bottle lottery!

The lottery begins at 12:01 a.m. Monday, Dec. 2 and runs through 11:59 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13.

As we did last year, you can enter both lotteries with one submission and have a chance to win a product from both collections. When you enter, you can choose to enter one lottery or both.

You can head to to access the entry page. After submission, you will receive a six digit ticket number; keep that number handy to help verify if you are a winner. Winners will be notified in early January using the email address entered with their submission. A list of winners will also be posted on our website.

Remember, you have 12 days to enter. No need to flood the website right at 12:01 a.m. on Dec. 2.
Finally, I would like to remind you that if you win, you win the opportunity to purchase the product. Trust me, they're worth it!

The Golden Barrel Program featured in Forty-Two+ is still open for you to enter for your chance to join us on an upcoming barrel selection. Pick up your copy today at any OHLQ location! And be sure to 'like' our Facebook page for these announcements and more.

Enjoy this special release and all products responsibly.
