Woodford Reserve®, the Presenting Sponsor of the Kentucky Derby®, is honoring “the greatest two minutes in sports” with the release of its 2018 Kentucky Derby commemorative bottle. The limited-edition Woodford Reserve bottle features the colorful artwork of Louisville artist Keith Anderson. The Derby bottle has been an annual collector’s item anticipated by bourbon and racing fans since 1999. Beginning in 2003, Woodford Reserve began featuring the work of national artists. This year’s bottle – the 19th in the series – features Anderson’s stunning painting of powerful thoroughbreds as they break from the starting gate, in the glory of their colorful racing silks. It won a Gold medal at the 2014 Whiskies of the World Awards. 2015 Ultimate Spirits Challenge: Excellent, Highly Recommended.
