Early May might have been slightly different with the absence of the revered Kentucky Derby — it’s been postponed for now until September 5th, 2020 — but that’s no reason not to mark the seminal race in a different way. Woodford Reserve whiskey and the Kentucky Derby have long gone hand-in-hand, and that tradition just got a bit cooler with the release of the Woodford Reserve 2020 Kentucky Derby Bottle, as fitting a way as any to mark the revered horse race.
Woodford Reserve pays homage to the legendary event with a special Kentucky Derby bottle that’s every bit as iconic as the day itself. Louisville artist Richard Sullivan’s watercolor rendering of the “greatest two minutes in sports” is striking and vivid, and what’s even better is that the bottle contains the ultimate pay-off — excellent Kentucky Derby 146 whiskey, perfect for sipping this spring and summer.
An even better way to recognize the Kentucky Derby? Crafting a special Woodford Reserve Mint Julep. We’ll raise our glass to that.
