There are two categories, one for Vermont consumers and one for Vermont Liquor Licensees (restaurants and bars). Winners will have the opportunity to purchase a bottle at their local DLC retail Agency. Entries will be accepted from December 21st, 2016 to January 12th, 2017 at midnight, with the drawing taking place on Friday, January 13th, 2017.

Entrants are allowed to enter once for each of the nine products listed, but are eligible to win only a single bottle from the sweepstakes. Winners will be required to show proof of Vermont residency upon purchase. Licensees will be required to provide their DLC issued license.
