These People Won the Van Winkle Bourbon Lottery at The Party Source — Make Friends with Them
During CityBeat's Bourbon & Bacon event on Wednesday, Dec. 5 at New Riff/The Party Source/Braxton Labs, 25 of the 250 guests won the ability to buy a coveted bottle of Van Winkle brand bourbon.
Each year, the ability to buy the highly sought after spirit is decided by a lottery system — winners don't win a free bottle; they just win the chance to buy a bottle of the small-run booze.
At this party, a select 25 won the right to buy either a 10-year bottle of Old Rip Van Winkle, a 12-year Van Winkle Special Reserve or a 15-year Pappy Van Winkle from The Party Source. So they have it. Make friends with them and drink their booze.| Photos by Hailey Bollinger
