Rare Life Honor

horizontal rule

Eagle Rare Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has won it's share of honors and rewards. Now we're honoring those who share our passion for excellence with the Rare Life Award. Some nominees are heroic. Some inspirational. Some just make an impact in their corner of the world. But all have one thing in common. They lead rare lives. Read their stories, vote on the ones that inspire you, and share them with friends. Each story will be submitted into one of six categories: Courage, Leadership, Survival, Devotion, Character, and Heroism. At the end of the voting, the top five finalists to receive the most votes in each seperate category will be considered for the category prize, while the top 30 nominees to receive the most votes overall, regardless of category, will be considered Grand Prize and the 2018 Eagle Rare Life Award.
