An old Derby favorite runs for the roses.

As the official bourbon of the Kentucky Derby, Woodford Reserve was rounding the turn into their 12th year selling the Thousand Dollar Mint Julep ($1KMJ). To increase sales down the stretch and maximize donations to national equine charities, we created a Derby-worthy mint julep bar, complete with a Triple Crown-winning julep cup minted exclusively for Woodford.
