According to a master distiller Chris Morris, the Double Double Oaked has such a cult following, it makes the bourbon difficult for consumers to get their hands on it and this sweepstake will allow more people the chance to try this special release.

Bourbon drinkers and collectors can register for the sweepstakes from Jam. 31 to Feb. 8, by submitting their information here. Winners will need to buy their bottle in person from the distillery before April 10.

The Double Double Oaked Bourbon will also be available at Woodford Reserve Distillery in Versailles starting at 10 a.m., Tuesday. Customers are only allowed to buy up to two 375ml bottles.

Double Double Oaked is 90.4 proof with a suggested retail price of $49.99 for a 375ml bottle.

The distillery said they will be reducing the number of guests inside the gift shop and requiring face masks in observation of COVID-19.
