What does a 12-year Japanese Single Malt Whiskey and a small-batch 125.8 proof Bourdon have in common? They are both part of the Oregon Liquor Control Commission’s third public drawing for rare and limited edition liquors. Featuring a lineup to accommodate a variety of price points and flavor palates, this public drawing will have something for anyone up to the chance to purchase a rare and limited edition Whiskey or Bourbon.
The following items will be available:
• Booker’s 30th Anniversary for $199.95 (three entries selected)
• Elijah Craig 23 Year for $199.95 (three entries selected)

The public drawing will be launching Thursday, April 25 at 9:00 a.m., and run 7 days, until Wednesday, May 1 at 11:00 p.m.
Entrants can sign up to win the chance to purchase just one bottle, or one of each of the products offered. Open to eligible Oregon residents only, those who win the opportunity to purchase will need to complete the transaction at any one of OLCC’s 280 liquor stores around the state.
“Our chance to purchase drawings make rare and limited edition liquors greatly more accessible to Oregonians from every part of the state,” said Steve Marks, OLCC Director. “Not only are these some rare bottles, but imported Whiskey in particular represents category of growing popularity for OLCC. We are pleased that we can continue to provide Oregon customers a unique, world class selection of popular spirits.”
This chance to purchase featuring Whiskey and Bourbon is OLCC’s third public drawing. The first chance to purchase launched in October 2018 and featured six bottles of the limited edition 2018 Old Forester Birthday Bourbon. The second drawing in November 2018 featured the Pappy Van Winkle and the Buffalo Trace Distillery Antique Collection.
OLCC receives special releases throughout the year, but there is a limit on quantities we receive from manufacturers and suppliers. The state has no control over how many bottles it receives each year. OLCC plans to use a public drawing to make available a portion of these rare or limited releases throughout each year.
