Venue Change Announced for November 12 Whiskey Sale

The Alabama ABC Board announced today that one of the two Birmingham-area stores selected to sell the famed Pappy Van Winkle line of Bourbons next week has been changed.

ABC Store #58, located at 3232 Galleria Circle in Hoover, will now be a host site for the one-day sale.  Store #58 in Hoover is taking the place of Store #98, located at 1425 Montgomery Highway, Suites 161 & 167, in Vestavia Hills. None of the specialty products will be sold at Store #98.

Buffalo Trace’s Pappy Van Winkle and other allocated and hard-to-find whiskeys of the world will be available for sale at 9:00 a.m. on November 12th.  Customers must possess and present a valid State of Alabama Driver’s License to purchase the specialty items.  Members of the United States Military may use a military I.D., but must have proof of residence in Alabama.  Buyers may only purchase one bottle from Tier 1 selections and up to two bottles from Tier 2.

The Van Winkle line, Antique Collection, and other Buffalo Trace products will be made available in the following eight stores:

Store #04 – 1199 South Donahue Drive, Auburn, AL 36830

Store #53 – 8115 Highway 72 West, Madison, AL 35758
