The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is once again holding a limited release lottery to award individuals and liquor license holders the ability to buy 1,804 of the popular, but limited production, Pappy Van Winkle bourbons.

According to the PLCB, the Kentucky whiskeys, produced by Pappy Van Winkle’s grandson using recipes dating three generations, are among the most sought-after in the world. Since 2002, the Van Winkle bourbons have been produced at the Buffalo Trace distillery in Kentucky.

It also noted that Wine Enthusiast magazine and the World Spirits Championship have rated the 20-year-old bourbon 99 out of 100.

For 2017, the PLCB is again offering multi-bottle packages of Pappy Van Winkle bourbons displayed in custom-made wooden boxes.

Four packages (two for individual consumers, two for licensees) will include each of the five available expressions of the 2017 Pappy release: Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 23 Year, Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 20 Year, Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 15 Year, Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year and Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year.

The price for each six-bottle package is $1,899.99.

Six packages (three for individual consumers, three for licensees) will consist of four Pappy Van Winkle bottles each: Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 20 Year, Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 15 Year, Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year and Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year.

The price for each four-bottle package is $1,199.99.

Thirty packages (15 for individual consumers, 15 for licensees) will consist of three bottles each: Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 20 Year, Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year and Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year.

The price for each three-bottle package is $999.99.

Additional drawings will be held, in the following order, to award the right to buy individual bottles as follows:
