The 2021 allocation of 2020 Van Winkle and Antique Collection releases is extremely limited, in a lot of cases we received one bottle of each product. Given the demand and waitlist far exceeds supply, we will be offering this series to customer via ballot – one item per customer across the BTAC/Pappy range.
Ballot for the 2020 BTAC and PVW bottles has been drawn and winners have been notified. Thank you and enjoy!
