Woodford Reserve®, the Presenting Sponsor of the Kentucky Derby®, is honoring “The Greatest Two Minutes in Sports” with the release of its 2020 commemorative Derby bottle.
It features the work of Louisville artist Richard Sullivan, a former Atlanta Braves baseball player. Sullivan’s stunning watercolor image is of thoroughbreds as they thunder toward the finish line, with the famed Twin Spires of Churchill Downs in the background.
“There is a poetic beauty in this year’s bottle because Richard Sullivan, the human athlete, is celebrating the equine athlete,” said Woodford Reserve Master Distiller Chris Morris.
The Derby bottle has been an annual collector’s item anticipated by bourbon and racing fans since 1999.Bottle Size: 1L

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.
