2019 Rare Whisk(e)y Raffle

2019 Rare Whisk(e)y Raffle

Gordon's DTX - 39 Temple Place Boston, MA, 02111
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM, Dec 07 2019

Your favorite Saturday of the year is quickly approaching! The Rare Whisk(e)y Raffle is almost here and we are busy putting the finishing touches on what is sure to be a fantastic afternoon full of drams, friends, and, possibly, a rare and collectible bottle of the distiller’s art for you to take home! 

The question to ask yourself is, did you accumulate enough tickets by purchasing Gordon’s Single Barrel bottlings in 2019 to snag that bottle of Pappy?  If not, have no fear. You can accumulate raffle tickets under your customer account online and at any of our 5 area locations until December 1st

After December 1st, your only opportunity to accumulate more tickets is through purchasing Gordon's Private Barrels in-store ONLY at Gordon's DTX up until December 7th at 3:30PM! Please see below an important list of dates and guidelines and as aways Happy Hunting!

IMPORTANT DATES TO KNOW

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1st: This is your LAST DAY to purchase any private barrels and accumulate tickets to your profile at 4 of our 5 Gordon's locations (Waltham Main, Waltham Moody, Newton & Watertown) or through our web store. The only exception is Gordon's DTX where after December 1st you can receive physical raffle tickets for any in-store purchases of Gordon's Private Barrels to put towards the December 7th raffle.

MONDAY, DECEMBER 2nd: Every customer who earned raffle tickets will receive an email detailing the number of tickets earned during the course of 2019. 
If you 
CAN ATTEND the December 7th Raffle at our Downtown Crossing location, you will receive your physical tickets upon arrival at DTX so that you can allocate them across one or multiple bottle buckets.
If you 
CANNOT ATTEND the Raffle, but would still like to participate you can reply to the December 2nd email with how you would like your tickets allocated. For example, if you earned 20 tickets and want a chance at the Pappy 20yr and 15yr, simply reply with “I’d like 10 tickets in the Pappy 20yr bucket and 10 tickets in the Pappy 15yr bucket.” We’ll take care of the rest! 

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7th: The Rare Whiskey Raffle will be held at our Downtown Crossing location from 2-4 PM. Our pre-raffle tasting will begin promptly at 2pm. As always, we plan on popping some rare and exclusive gems so, you won’t want to miss it! We will begin the raffle at 3:30pm (see bottle list below) and should conclude the festivities around 4pm after which you can purchase any bottles you won or just stock up for the Holidays.

NEW SINGLE BARREL RELEASE TASTING (2:00-3:30PM):
Chairman's Reserve Master Selection Single Barrel's 13yr & 19yr
This past June, Ken took a sabbatical to St. Lucia to learn what rum is all about. Just as he found his passion for whisky in Scotland, this trip had the same effect. Ken came back hooked on rum and so will you after you taste these two single barrel selections!

Eagle Rare 10yr
The Eagle Has Landed! Finally, after an almost two year hiatus, Eagle Rare Single Barrels are finally back. This one is no joke. Limited quantities of 1.75's available as well!

Four Roses OBSK (8yr6m)
This is one of two remaining recipes for 2019 that Gordon's has not yet picked and our 3rd out of 4 barrels of the year. Another reason to love Four Roses!

WhistlePig 10yr (aka 11yr)
Coming in at 112.2 proof, this is your go-to rye this holiday season. Drink it neat, on the rocks, or in a fancy cocktail. Just enjoy a simple, yet elegant glass of WhistlePig!
