Ohio Liquor Announces 2019 Bourbon Bottle Lottery Winners

The Ohio Department of Commerce has notified the winners of the 2019 Buffalo Trace and Pappy Van Winkle Bottle Lottery. Winners will receive an email from the Ohio Division of Liquor Control with further instructions on how to redeem your bottle. If you are wondering what the odds of winning were, I have you covered here! Sadly, there were two Mark R's listed as winners, but I wasn't one of them.

As a spoiler, entrants had 7x better odds of contracting the flu this year than winning the bottle lottery further enforcing the ridiculous liquor laws in Ohio where the state determines supply and demand.

If you are curious to see the winners, you can view the list here. Some of my favorite names are:
  • Ronald M. 252936 (hopefully last name is McDonald)
  • Chrystle M. 277624
  • Kristopher K. 290208
  • Christopher S. 374909
  • Chris G. 354259
  • Pranalee C. 377792
  • Jennalee E. 291986
  • Dominic1 O. 395788 (has a number in his name)
  • Kaiser B. 447536
  • Junett W. 259038
  • Relanie C. 260647
  • Zechariah M. 267002
  • Eryn G. 398254
  • Rimas B. 446328
As I have in the past, I will continue to cover the 2020 Bottle Lottery and all Ohio Bottle Raffles as they are announced.

Congrats to all the winners. If you were fortunate enough to snag a bottle, drop a note in the comments with which one!


  1. I've won a bottle of eagle rare 17 but honestly not a fan of eagle rare. Would've been my last choice. Open for suggestions on unloading it

    1. That was the one I was hoping to win. Shoot me an email if you're serious about getting rid of it for something in return.

  2. I'd be more than happy to purchase it off your hands lol

    1. Found a place online that want to purchase it offering $750. That's insane to me but I'm also a little skeptical. They pay half up front and half upon delivery they said however

    2. What's the place? I also have a bottle of Eagle Rare 17 that I might be willing to sell for the right price.
