This is the first year that the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control rolled out a lottery system for the three Pappy products the department got in stock this year.
The first Pappy lottery was for the Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 15-Year Bourbon. There were 25,659 entries during the 48-hour lottery last week for the 96 bottles Virginia ABC has in stock this year.
Virginia ABC will review the entries to ensure they’re all in-state and delete any duplicates and/or out-of-state submissions. The winners must produce a valid Virginia driver’s license to buy the product.
