Ohio Division of Liquor Control Announces Dumbest Lottery So Far - Double Eagle Very Rare & O.F.C. (1993 Vintage)

In what is a new bar set for ridiculous raffles, the Ohio Division of Liquor Control has announced a lottery for two bottles of Double Eagle Very Rare and six bottles of O.F.C. (1993 Vintage). The Double Eagle Very Rare is being sold for $2000 per bottle + tax. The O.F.C. comes in at an even more staggering $2499.98 + tax... which begs the question.... why not just make it an even $2500?

The lottery will begin at 12:01 a.m. Monday, March 25 and run through 11:59 p.m. Friday, April 5. People can enter at with either a valid Ohio driver's license number or bars and restaurants must enter their permit number.

New for this lottery, the state is opening up to both individuals as well as retail consumers (bars and restaurants) which means even lower odds and more frustration. Individuals and retail customers can enter both lotteries with one submission and have a chance to win a product from both collections.

The Double Eagle Very Rare is a 20 year version of Eagle Rare and bottled at 90 proof. We wrote about this when it was announced last month. The Cliffs' Notes version is that it's a 20 year bourbon in a fancy container.

The O.F.C. (1993 Vintage) has been aged 25 years. It comes in a wooden display box. The liquor comes in a crystal bottle with copper lettering and a hand applied paper label.

As we mentioned, this lottery is insane. In our opinion, anyone who has $2000 or more to spend on bourbon, needs to check their priorities in life. We would recommend animal welfare as a better use of your money.

As always, we'll continue to monitor all state bourbon and whiskey raffles and lotteries. Sometimes there are good raffles and lotteries. Be sure to subscribe at so you never miss any news.
