At Spirit World, our motto is Drink, Learn, Repeat. We value the experience of sharing great whiskey with like-minded friends and connoisseurs, and learning from each other. For us, whiskey is about passion and connection, not price gouging and secondary markets. In that spirit, the following explains our system for handling our whiskey allocations.
We will host periodic tasting events where we sample a selection of whiskies curated by our spirits staff, and hold a lottery drawing to sell allocated bottles we have received in recent weeks. The best way to learn about these events is to sign up for our mailing list and select "Allocated Whisk(e)y" as one of your preferences. We also encourage you to "like" and check our Facebook page, as ALL of our events are posted there. The Allocated Whiskey Events will allow a limited number of guests, so tickets will sell quickly, but the odds of winning the right to buy an allocated bottle are high.
Our allocation of Pappy Van Winkle and Buffalo Trace Antique Collection bottles will now ONLY be available for purchase by the peg and dram at our bar (while supplies last). We will host a ticketed event the day they become available on the bar to celebrate their release. You must be on our Allocated Whiskey email list to receive an invitation to purchase tickets to this event. We will NOT have retail bottles for sale or raffle of these brands.
If you have been a long-time Spirit World customer and have attended our Pappy events in the past, we realize this is a significant departure from the way we have handled our allocated whiskies in the past. Our intent is to bring things back to our core values of sharing our knowledge and passion with friends, and to constantly challenge ourselves to do better. We feel this approach is more in keeping with the way the originators of many of these brands wanted their whiskeys to be enjoyed, and to be honest, it's just more fun for us. We look forward to raising a glass with you at one of our events in the near future!
