Mark Your Calendars! The Buffalo Trace Antique Collection and Pappy Van Winkle Lotteries will open on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. 

In an effort to more equitably distribute limited availability products that are in high-demand, the DLC has developed a lottery process for our most popular, hard to find products. Limited-release lotteries are open to Montgomery County residents only.

To celebrate the start of the new year, the DLC will offer the opportunity to purchase 160 bottles of Pappy Van Winkle products and 94 bottles of Buffalo Trace Antique Collection products -- including packages containing multiple bottles of these very popular, limited-production spirits.

Registration for both lotteries will begin at 2:00pm on Wednesday, January 2nd, and Montgomery County residents will have until 11:59pm on Sunday, January 6th, to enter. Once the lotteries close, random drawings will be conducted and we hope to notify all winners and runners-up of their status by Thursday, January 10th.
