On Thursday, Sazerac announced an inaugural sweepstakes offering Blanton’s fans the opportunity to purchase a barrel of Blanton’s Gold Bourbon. The proceeds are set to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The winner of the Blanton’s Gold Charity Sweepstakes will receive a VIP tour at Buffalo Trace Distillery with up to seven guests, a private barrel selection experience, a $20,000 prize so the winner can purchase bottles from their chosen barrel, a private lunch at the distillery and the empty barrel.
The Blanton’s Gold Charity Sweepstakes will begin Feb. 12 and end Feb. 29. The winner will be drawn at random, and informed by phone and email the week of March 4. Those who desire to enter will receive one shot at entry into the sweepstakes after a $100 donation is made at the registration portal.
Blanton’s Gold is described by Buffalo Trace as the world’s first single-barrel bourbon. The bourbon originated in 1984 and was created by master distiller Elmer T. Lee. This in-demand bourbon brand has a diehard fanbase, and is known for its distinctive horse-shaped toppers. Each topper features a letter spelling out “Blanton’s,” and collectors around the world try to get their hands on all 8 letters.
Sazerac Barrel Select is designed to offer fans a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we’re thrilled to offer Blanton’s Gold, one of the most coveted bourbons on the market,” Sazerac Barrel Select General Manager Diego Bianchi said in a statement. “We are proud to support St. Jude and their mission to advance cures, and means of prevention, childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases through research and treatment.
