The Ohio Department of Liquor has posted the results of the 2021 Blanton's, Eagle Rare, and E.H. Taylor Lottery. Sadly, for the second lottery in a row, there was a Mark R on the winners list, but it wasn't me.

You can click here to see the entire winners list. I've reached out to OHLQ for additional details on how many entries were received and will have more analysis when I hear back. 

Congrats to all the winners.

As you may know, for something to be labeled as bottled-in-bond, it must be the product of a single distillery from a single distilling season, aged a minimum of four years, and bottled at 100 proof or 50% alcohol by volume.
