Woodford Reserve®, the Official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby®, is honoring “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports” with the release of its 2019 Kentucky Derby commemorative bottle. This year marks the 20th anniversary for the Derby bottle and a special year-long exhibit at the Frazier History Museum -- the start of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail in downtown Louisville -- will celebrate that milestone.
The limited-edition 2019 Woodford Reserve Derby bottle features the colorful artwork of Keith Anderson and showcases thoroughbreds racing across the front. This is the second year that Anderson, who works in the Bourbon Street Café at Brown-Forman headquarters in Louisville, has been chosen to have his work featured on the collectible annual release. Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select is a super-premium, small batch bourbon crafted at the historic Woodford Reserve Distillery, located in the heart of Kentucky’s Bluegrass Region. It is a bourbon of exceptional richness, depth, and character with a smooth, well-rounded finish.
ABOUT THE ARTIST

The current site of the Woodford Reserve Distillery was originally founded in 1812 by Elijah Pepper, making it one of America’s oldest operating bourbon distilleries. Often cited as the birthplace of bourbon, it was here in 1838 that Dr James Crow perfected the “Sour Mash” process that is still used in bourbon production today, adding to the distillery’s historical value. In fact, in 1995 the distillery was officially recognized by the US Government and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, culminating in its recognition as a National Historic Landmark in 2000.
