The winning applicant will receive a three-day trip to New York City for St. Patrick's Day, including flights, accommodation, and transportation within the Big Apple. 

They will also take part in the famous New York St. Patrick's Day Parade, which has been led by the Fighting 69th Regiment since 1851. 

Members of the unit raise a toast every St. Patrick's Day to the sacrifices that soldiers in the unit have made while serving the United States. They also honor the heritage of the unit and its connection with Ireland. 

To ensure that members of the unit were using an appropriate drink to make the toast, the Sixty-Ninth Infantry Regiment Historical Trust decided to distill its own whiskey. 

The non-profit was established to preserve the heritage of the historic unit whilst also providing financial assistance for members of the unit, veterans, and their families. A portion of the whiskey sales goes toward the trust's mission. 

The winning applicant will also see their creation included in an upcoming Fighting 69th cocktail book. 

Fighting 69th Irish Whiskey will announce the winner of the competition via email on February 22, 2022.
