    The flavor profiles for this barrel pick came from one of the Master Distillers at New Riff Distillery. Aroma: Fresh Vanilla, Maple, Woody // Palate: Nutty, Rich Caramel, Fruity. The bottle is 750ml and will have a Spartan head etched on the back of the bottle. There will also be a custom label included in the package. Finally, the top of the bottle will be dipped in wax!

    With the purchase of this $100 ticket you will get a 1/150 bottle of bourbon. Bottles can NOT be shipped. They must be picked up once they arrive to Roger Bacon. Customers will be notified when bottles arrive. They are expected to arrive in the middle of November.

  • Parents/Guardians of the Class of 2025:

    On Thursday, 11/9, your child received their practice ACT results. Also, they received a letter inviting them to join a free ACT prep course.

Roger Bacon High School and Academic Solutions strongly encourage you and your junior to take advantage of this opportunity.
    • Participation in this ACT prep class is strictly voluntary, but students who register are expected to attend all classes. We do ask that if interested, you register by Tuesday, November 21 by filling out this form:
