Actually more than 300 bottles, the most the retailer has had to offer for its annual Pappy lottery in years.
This year, 52 Louisville Division Kentucky Kroger Wine and Spirits Shops (which includes Lexington and most of Central Kentucky) will hold drawings for the chance to buy one of six bottles of Pappy Van Winkle bourbons available at each store, according to the announcement.
How can you enter? Customers who are over 21-years-old can enter for a drawing Dec. 17 through Dec. 21. You can enter at multiple stores but only one entry per person per day per store.
The drawings will be held at 9 a.m. on Dec. 22. Winners of the Kroger Pappy lottery will be contacted by phone and bottles will be available for pick up after 4 p.m.
There’s no guarantee on which expression of the coveted premium Kentucky bourbon a customer will be allowed to buy for suggested retail price.
