2022 Durham County ABC Whiskey Lottery
Durham’s allocated bourbon lottery was officially announced on October 13th and registration is officially open. As of now, it sounds like Durham is still waiting to receive their final allotment of allocated bourbons, so no list of available whiskeys has been posted. The current announcement does not seem to limit who can enter the lottery, other than by age.
The Durham County ABC board is limiting the lottery to one entry per person, but anyone 21+ can enter. No date has been given for the final drawing, but winners will be called and asked to select their bottles (more info on this to come). To find a link to the registration, view the official announcement. We’ll post more info as it becomes available.
