It is that time of year again…to sign up for the LBS Bourbon Advent! We are going to do things a little different this year so that we can maximize the number of members who are able to participate. For those of you new to LBS or a Bourbon Advent Calendar, here are the basics for our group. There will be two calendars available for signup. Choose the bottle that you want to submit. Purchase 24 1-oz Boston round bottles, and divide your bottle between them (you should have 1 oz left over for yourself since a 750mL has roughly 25 oz). Label each bottle with the bottle information you submitted. Printed address labels work perfectly for this! Then, show up on November 14th with your bottles in hand for the exchange. Lastly, enjoy a different pour each day in December!
Here are some rules:
- We now have a sign up sheet to enter your chosen bottle into one of the two available calendars. You MUST know what bottle you are submitting BEFORE you sign up. We will not accept TBD bottles. The two calendars to choose from are the Store/Retail Single Barrel Bourbon Pick (not just a normal single barrel off the shelf) or the Premium $75+ Bourbon calendar.
- Members are only allowed to sign up for ONE of the two calendars per person. Household members can sign up for one of each calendar. If there are spots available after the first week, we will allow members to sign up for additional calendars. We will announce if/when this option is available.
- If you are unable to make the November 14th date, you are responsible for making sure all of your 1 oz. bottles are at the exchange. You may deliver them to me or choose to have another participating member take them in your stay.
- Please be prompt for the exchange as we want to make sure the exchange goes as smoothly and quickly as possible.
Please let us know if you have any questions. As a reminder, we will be following the current CDC and LBS guidelines and ask that you mask while inside the facility.
