Thousands of people entered the lottery for the Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 15-year Bourbon. On the day the lottery opened, Virginia ABC received at least eight times the number of active users typically on their website.

Winners will be selected in a random drawing from all entries accepted during the entry period. All entries will have an equal chance of winning an opportunity to purchase a bottle.
