Ealge Rare Bourbon is a Kentucky based bourbon that is changing lives. No, really.

The 2018 Eagle Rare Bourbon Rare Life Award is open for nominations.


Kentucky is known for many things like the derby, mint juleps and well, bourbon! That being said, it is no surprise when you taste the Eagle Rare Bourbon and get true Kentucky notes that have been in the family for centuries.


Since 1773, The Distillery has been making Kentucky Bourbon with the likes of famous names such as E.H. Taylor, Jr., George T. Stagg, Albert B. Blanton, Orville Schupp, and Elmer T. Lee. It's a classic and will continue to inspire!


The Eagle Rare Bourbon Rare Life Award celebrates those who lead a rare life, demonstrating courage, leadership, survival, devotion, character and heroism.


With a team of six hand picked judges at the table, the Rare Life Award will be given to those who best meet these standards. Nominations are open until September 22nd, 2017 and then voting by the judges are concluded by December 5th, 2017.


After the voting closes, each story and nomination are reviewed based on these categories: courage, leadership, survival, devotion, character and heroism. There are 10 nominees chosen and then one winner from that group.


As well , the top 5 from each category will be chosen and from there there will be cash prize donations in each category. To cast a vote and nominate someone, click here.
