2020 State of Ohio Pappy Van Winkle and Buffalo Trace Antique Collection Bottle Lotteries Announced

Like last year and the year before, the The Ohio Division of Liquor Control (OHLQ) has announced the Pappy Van Winkle and Buffalo Trace Antique Collection bottle lottery. This is a lottery to win the opportunity to purchase a hard to find bottle of select Buffalo Trace products at retail prices. The 2020 edition begins at 12:01 a.m. Monday, Dec. 7 and runs through 11:59 p.m. Monday, Dec. 14.

There are technically two lotteries... one for the 2020 Pappy Van Winkle collection and one for the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection bottles. Participants will be able to enter both lotteries with one submission and have a chance to win a product from both collections. Entrants must be an Ohio resident 21 years or older and the following is required:
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Street Address
  • Date of Birth
  • Email Address
  • Phone Number
  • Ohio Driver’s License Number or Ohio Identification Card Number 
Winners will be notified in January and will have the opportunity to purchase one bottle. Bottles must be purchased by 1/25/2021 or risk forfeiting the ability to purchase. 

The following brands will be available in the lottery.
