Whiskey Bottle Winners will receive a designated number of entries for the Whiskey Experience based on the position of their bid (i.e., the 1st highest bidding Whiskey Bottle Winner will receive 200 entries, the 2nd highest bidding Whiskey Bottle Winner will receive 199 entries, and so on until the 200th highest bidding Whiskey Bottle Winner receives 1 entry). Bid position is determined by 1) the bid amount and 2) in the case of bids in the same amount, the time each bid is placed.


Bidding Process:

    • Use the CES Connect app to place your bid by following the prompts under “Live Events.”
    • The minimum starting bid is $75.
    • Upon inputting your payment information and placing an initial bid, a temporary authorization will be placed on your card in the amount of $75 (irrespective of the amount of your initial bid). Your card won’t be charged unless you are in the top 200 at the auction’s end.
    • You may view the status of your bid in relation to other participants and can increase your bid amount through the app at any time prior to Bid Closing Time at 2:45 p.m. If you are within the top 200 at auction close, your card will be charged $75 (the amount of the initial minimum bid).
      • Note that duplicate bids (i.e., competing bids of the same amount) will be awarded to the earliest bidder.
    • Finalizing Bids: The top 200 bidders must pay any remaining amount owed in excess of $75 by 5:00 p.m. to be eligible for the Whiskey Experience Raffle.
      • Please note that your bid is not finalized until full payment is made of your final bid amount during the Payment Deadline Period (from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.). This additional action is required to ensure your full eligibility.
