Springbank Limited Editions 2024 Ballot

by WhiskyBrother Marc

It's that time of year again when we hold our annual ballot to offer the chance to purchase the latest limited releases from Springbank. These whiskies were released late last year, and now very limited stock has arrived in SA.

We have far too few bottles to make these releases openly available, so once again we are defaulting to a ballot to provide a fair and equitable approach to interested customers. (If you are new to our ballot system and want to understand why we chose this approach, please scroll to the bottom for more info.)

In addition to the ballot, these whiskies are available to order by the dram at our whisky bar in Morningside and we have a new DramPack available to allow more fans the opportunity to taste the whiskies.

Springbank Ballot 2024


The following five limited releases are available through this ballot:

  1. Springbank 10yo Palo Cortado (2023) 55%, R2,250
  2. Springbank 18yo 46%, R2,980
  3. Springbank 21yo (2023) 46%, R7,200
  4. Longrow 21yo 46%, R7,200
  5. Kilkerran Heavily Peated (Batch 9) 59.2%, R1,490


Please enter your details below in order to stand a chance to be able to purchase a bottle of either limited release whisky. We will randomly draw as many customers as we have bottles available, with each customer being allowed to purchase a single bottle.

You may enter the ballot for as many of the five whiskies as you are interested in; they will be run as separate ballots so your chances will not be increased or decreased, no matter which whiskies you are interested in.



  • By entering this ballot you agree to receive future communication from WhiskyBrother&Co
  • Only one entry per person accepted - multiple entries will be removed
  • The ballot will close on Sunday 14th April at midnight
  • Winners will be emailed by Tuesday 16th April at 5pm
  • Winners must complete their purchase by Sunday 21st April at midnight
  • Please note that unsuccessful ballot entries will not be contacted; if you haven't received communication that you are a successful ballot winner by Tuesday 16th April at 5pm, it means you are unsuccessful.
  • Only open to South African residents, aged 18 and over


The simple reality is, we have very few bottles available for retail, but we know the demand outstrips availability by 100x (and that's honestly not an exaggeration).

We are fortunate that after 11 years of trading we have a sizeable customer base across our beautiful country. Some customers may only buy once a year, while others buy weekly, and some don't support us at all but would be more than happy to buy one of these releases regardless. We appreciate all our customers, and any measure to determine who "deserves" to purchase will be flawed and will leave many upset.

A ballot system leaves things to chance and gives everyone fair time to enter: You register your interest, we have an impartial third-party randomly select names, and those lucky individuals then have the opportunity to purchase a bottle. Love it or hate it, this has become the defacto approach globally for any professional retailer trying to distribute the limited stock in the fairest manner.
