Ohio Division of Liquor Control (OHLQ) Announces Summer Bottle Lottery - Starting August 22

The Ohio Division of Liquor Control (OHLQ) has announced an upcoming lottery for bottles of:

  • E.H. Taylor Warehouse C
  • Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel
  • Weller 12 Year
  • Weller Single Barrel
  • Blanton's Straight From the Barrel
This new lottery will begin at 12:01 a.m. on August 22 and end at 11:59 p.m. on August 29th.


In order to enter, you'll need to provide the following:
  • Ohio Driver’s License Number / Ohio Identification Card Number
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Street Address
  • Date of Birth
  • Email Address
  • Preferred OHLQ store location for purchasing the product if you win
Must be 21 years old. Military service members stationed in Ohio are also eligible to enter. If you win, you'll be able to purchase the bottle at for:
  • E.H. Taylor Warehouse C - $69.99 + tax
  • Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel - $37.99 + tax
  • Weller 12 Year - $39.98 + tax
  • Weller Single Barrel - $49.99 + tax
  • Blanton's Straight From the Barrel - $150 + tax
You can enter at once the lottery is live. Winners will be notified on September 9. I'll also be posting reminders throughout the week. 


From what I can tell, this lottery took place in September last year so it's been moved up in the calendar a few weeks. This year has also removed Weller C.Y.P.B. and Weller Full Proof and has added E.H. Taylor Warehouse C, Weller 12 Year, and Blanton's to the mix of bottles. Prices for the two holdovers is unchanged year-to-year. 

Last year, there were 3974 available bottles and 58,454 entries... which puts the odds at 6.799% or 1 in 15. That makes it the highest odds of winning for any OHLQ lottery since I've been keeping track.

My Take

A no-brainer to enter. All of these bottles are highly coveted and the prices are well below what the market would pay.
