Rare Life Honor

Award and Contest


Honoring those who lead rare lives

Lives of Courage, Leadership, Survival, Devotion, Character, and Heroism

Eagle Rare Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey has won its share of honors and awards. 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 voting, the top five finalists to receive the most votes in each separate category will be considered for the category prize by Eagle Rare representatives, while the top 30 nominees to receive the most votes overall, regardless of category, will be considered by a panel of judges for the Grand Prize and the 2018 Eagle Rare Life Award.
