The scramble for Pappy Van Winkle’s 23-year reserve bourbon has been a routine occurrence in Utah, with local media coverage that makes it look like the day-after-Thanksgiving shopping frenzy. https://lat.ms/2ZOKLxj
Other states run lottery systems to control this, but gambling frowned upon in Utah. And so, the state alcohol agency will be using “a distribution system for a limited quality product” to control Pappy Van Winkle madness.
The “Rare High Demand Drawing” will commence Tuesday, when the Department of Alcohol Beverage Control Commission holds its monthly meeting. Only Utah residents are eligible to apply to purchase the $270 Pappy Van Winkle bourbon. https://lat.ms/2ZOKLxj
