All entries must be received during the Sweepstakes Period. Sponsor’s computer (or that of its designee for this Sweepstakes) is the official time keeping device for online entry into the Sweepstakes.

How to Enter: To enter, access the entry form located at www.bristolfarms.com/vanwinkle   You will be asked to enter your first and last name, an email address, phone number, and your preferred “primary” Bristol Farms store.   The entry must be complete and eligibility must fulfill all Sweepstakes requirements, as specified in these Official Rules, to be eligible to win the Prize.  Please note that all Selected Winners must be verified in Person. Entries that are incomplete or do not adhere to these Official Rules may be disqualified at the sole discretion of Sponsor. You may enter only once. You must provide the information requested. You may not enter more than once by using multiple email addresses, identities, or devices in an attempt to circumvent the Official Rules.

By submitting an entry, you represent and warrant that all of the information provided as part of your entry is accurate, does not violate any third party’s legal rights (including without limitation rights of privacy and publicity), and otherwise does not violate applicable law.

Prizes: The selected winner of the Sweepstakes (the “Selected Winner”) will be given the Prize of an opportunity to purchase a limited-edition bottle of whiskey, as outlined below (the “Selected Bottle”).  There is no cash value to the Prize, given it is an opportunity to purchase a Selected  Bottle.  The  actual/appraised value of the Bottle may differ from what is listed, and if so, that will not change the purchase price of the Bottle.  The purchase price of the Bottle, as listed in these Official Rules, does not include tax, which will be the sole responsibility of the Selected Winner.  Any and all Prize-related expenses, including without limitation transportation costs, shall be the sole responsibility of Selected Winner. The winning of the Prize is not a taxable event, but the purchase of the Bottle, should the Selected Winner choose to accept it, is a taxable event.  No substitution of Prize or transfer/assignment of Prize to others or request for any special privilege by Selected Winner is permitted, except by Sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute the Bottle for something of equal or greater value for any reason. Acceptance of Prize constitutes permission for Sponsor to use Selected Winner’s name, likeness, and entry for purposes of advertising and trade without further compensation, unless prohibited by law. Prizes are awarded “AS IS” with no warranty, representation or guarantee, express or implied, in fact or in law, made by Sponsor or for which Sponsor shall be liable, including, without limitation, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NONINFRINGEMENT OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

Odds: The odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received by Sponsor.

Selected Winner Selection and Notification: The Selected Winners (9) will be selected by a random drawing by or under the supervision of Sponsor from among all eligible entries received by Sponsor. The Selected Winner will be notified by email within forty-eight (48) hours following selection of the Selected Winner, by telephone and email only. Sponsor shall have no liability for the Selected Winner’s failure to review messages or email notices from Sponsor due to SPAM filters, telephone block systems or other technology challenges or security settings or for the Selected Winner’s provision of incorrect or otherwise non-functioning contact information. Selected Winner will have 24 hours to reply by email only.  If the Selected Winner cannot be contacted, is ineligible, or fails to claim the Prize within 24 hours, the Prize may be forfeited and an alternate Selected Winner may be selected by Sponsor, up to three times. Receipt by the Selected Winner of the Prize offered in this Sweepstakes is conditioned upon compliance with any and all federal, state, and local laws and regulations. ANY VIOLATION OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES BY THE SELECTED WINNER (AT SPONSOR‘S SOLE DISCRETION) WILL RESULT IN THE SELECTED WINNER’S DISQUALIFICATION AS SELECTED WINNER OF THE SWEEPSTAKES, AND ALL PRIVILEGES AS SELECTED WINNER WILL BE IMMEDIATELY TERMINATED.

Bottle Selection:  Selected Winners will be provided a number at the time they respond to the Selected Winner notification, as outlined above (1-9).  The number corresponds to the order the Selected Winner will be able to choose from the 9 enumerated Bottles.  For instance, the Selected Winner with number 1 (the first draw) will have first choice.  Please note that, while a Selected Winner’s priority position cannot go down (e.g., a person told they are number 7 will never go to number 8), in the event a Selected Winner with a higher number does not claim the Prize within 24 hours, Selected Winners may be notified they have a lower (better) number.  All Bottles are 750ml bottles.

Declaration of Eligibility: The Selected Winner will be required to execute and return to the Sponsor a declaration of eligibility (the “Declaration”), and Selected Winner must provide a valid California ID card, in person, to claim the Bottle.  By completing, signing and returning the Declaration, the Selected Winner (i) releases and forever discharges the Sponsor, its affiliates and subsidiaries, and their respective advertising and promotional agencies from all claims, demands, damages, actions and causes of action arising out of participation in this Sweepstakes or to arise by use of the Prize, and (ii) confirms compliance with these Official Rules.
