Buffalo Trace Antique Collection – 2017 Releases ballot

Nickolls & PerksAmerican Whiskey14 Comments

The incredibly coveted American whiskeys from the 2017 Antique Collection by Buffalo Trace have returned for another year. As we did at the beginning of this year, we’ll be putting 100% of our allocation into a ballot to give as many of you as possible the chance to get your hands on a bottle.

If you’re reading this blog there’s a good chance you know what these releases are about, therefore you most likely know how incredibly rare these are too. Last year was the first time we introduced the ballot system to try and make things easier when handling such rare whiskeys. In total, we received over 1,000 entries. This year we are reducing the time the ballot is open for to just 6 days, to help improve the chances of successful candidates.

This year we were given 2 cases (3 bottles in each case) of George T. Stagg, 2 cases of William Larue Weller and 1 case of Thomas H Handy. Unfortunately, at this stage we aren’t able to offer the Sazerac 18 Year Old or the Eagle Rare 17 Year Old, though we are still extremely grateful for what we do have. As usual, all bottles will be sold at RRP to the winners once they have been picked.

    Beginning to wonder if this ‘raffle’ was just a ploy to beef up the email distribution list as I know many people that joined and none that won, curious if any real people won or maybe awarded to family and friends like much of the black market bourbon trade.

      Hi Mike, we can assure you that all bottles were distributed through the lottery to genuine entrees. None of our allocation was held back for any other purposes. We have shared images of winners with their bottles on Instagram and Twitter 🙂
