Winner Procedures

Congratulations!  You won!  

Each Sweepstake winner will have to register at the store where they won a place in line.  Please remember to bring your Alabama State issued ID, Alabama driver's license or military photo ID.  The name on your ID must match the name on the Sweepstakes entry exactly.

We will have a registration tent set up specifically for Sweepstakes winners at every location.  It will open at 8:00 am.  Any customers on the property before 8:00 am will be asked to vacate the premise until their allotted time slot and/or the registration tents open.  You should have been given a time to arrive and register when you were notified.  The Sweepstakes winner’s times are listed below.  These are the times at which the Sweepstakes winners will be allowed on the premises.  As participants cannot come on the property until their assigned time slot, these tents shall be placed in locations near the edge of the property.

All customers wishing to participate in the Whiskey Release shall be required to wear a mask in accordance with State and local mandates/guidelines while in the registration line, on the property, in the Whiskey Release line, or in the store.  Each participant must pass a temperature check and will be asked to confirm that they are not currently experiencing nor have they recently experienced any COVID-19 symptoms.  For the safety of everyone involved, no person shall be allowed on the premises that has a temperature above 99.6 or is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19.  Those symptoms include coughing, sore throat, body aches, fever, loss of taste and/or smell or shortness of breath.

To keep the crowds manageable and to allow for the comfort and safety of all involved, participants shall only be allowed to get in line at their specified time. 

Once in the store, you will notice that a few things have changed.  Table 1 and Table 2 will remain the same.  As in the past, you will be able to get one (1) product total from Table 1 and two (2) products total from Table 2 (not the same product).  The line will then go around the perimeter of the store to accommodate safety measures for all participants.  The products in Area 3 shall be on four tables that are spaced apart so participants can shop each table in comfort.  Only two bottles of each item will be on the table at any given time.  They will be refilled as they are purchased.  We plan to have one ABC store employee at each table.  Participants will be required to stay in line and not move ahead of the participant in front of you.  All products available in the Whiskey Release shall be available via this method.  You shall have the opportunity to shop every product that is still available within your time slot.

Thank you for your safe participation in the 2021 Annual Whiskey Release.
