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 will fill our allocated whiskey events with guests from this mailing list first, then open it up to others if seats are not sold out. The Allocated Whiskey Events allow a limited number of guests, and historically, tickets have sold quickly. We also encourage you to "like" and check our Facebook page, as many of our events are posted there.
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). COVID restrictions permitting, we plan to host an 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!
