    I don’t think these are the official Championship bottles. I think it’s just a quick one they put together as a collectors item. I would bet money the real championship one, much like 1996, will be next years Keeneland bottle.

    i believe this is the sucker bottle so they can sell twice as much.
    surely they’ll do more than that.

    They are not allowed to put anything UK on the bottle. They are not allowed to profit of UK or the NCAA.
    The keeneland bottles are a lil different because they are charity related. Makers actually got in trouble for the 1996 bottle. Hence the reason there was no 1998 bottle

    I remember having to get on a waiting list in ’96 at Liquior Barn to get one. They were out much sooner, I believe. In ’98, they didn’t do a bottle, but they dipped their cigar cases in blue and put Kentucky 1998 on it. I got one of those. I hope a nice friend in KY picks me up one of these beauties to continue my collection!

    I just ran to a couple of different stores (in louisville) and they were already sold out. Bummer. I hope they do another one!

    Indiana is going to be on a bottle of Shasta to celebrate their sweet 16 appearance. They only made 12 bottles. You know, no demand for it.

    Lots of places in Louisville are already selling them right now. Limited edition batches typically are done in 18,000. This one only had 9,000 made. I picked mine up just a few minutes ago.

    Makers Mark has worn this marketing concept out. I got the original Makers Mark blue back in 1993 when it was a novel idea and they have since saturated the market with all types of colored wax bottles. No matter how you look at it, it is still a bottle of overpriced bourbon.

    I hate ppl that buy extras to sell for a profit. I go to buy 1 for myself and can’t find them because they are sold out.

    I got mine at 1 PM today at the Bottle Shoppe in Danville. Just happened to be coming out of the gym and saw the pickup truck pullup with the delivery. I helped the store owner carry the cases in and I bought his first one… #8,345 out of 9,000. At first I was worried about just being able to get one, now I’m starting to wish I had gotten a lower number. Doesn’t matter… didn’t buy it to sell, just to put with my other UK Maker’s bottles.

    They need a big “8” stamped in the wax!

    I just spoke to Liquor Barn in Lexington at Hamburg Place and they still have the championship bottles available but they are not allowed to ship them.
