Woodford Reserve, the Official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby, is honoring this year’s “Run for the Roses” with the release of its 2016 Kentucky Derby commemorative bottle.
This year’s limited-edition Woodford Reserve Kentucky Derby bottle features artwork from equine artist Thomas Allen Pauly.
Chicago native Pauly is the Official Artist of American Pharoah – Triple Crown Winner. His painting “Barreling Down” is featured on the front of the Woodford Reserve bottle. The image on the bottle features a closeup look into the big race as two thoroughbreds and jockeys are neck and neck.
The neck band features black and Woodford Reserve’s signature copper color with the Kentucky Derby 142 date and Thomas Allen Pauly’s signature sealing the top of the bottle. A neck tag provides details about the product and the artist.
The commemorative liter-size bottle will be available nationwide on shelves in March. The suggested retail price, depending on market, is $43.99 per 1-L. bottle.
Woodford Reserve has been the “Official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby” for the past 18 years.
