Woodford Reserve, the official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby will be shaking and serving $1,000 Mint Julep Cocktails on May 2nd. It’s made with sugar cane grown on the French Island of Reunion and mint leaves grown in Turkey near the Euphrates River, even the ice is exclusive, made from water in the Norwegian Wilderness (no, I’m not making this stuff up). The cups are cast in sterling silver and plated in 24K Gold. In fact the cups are made by New England Sterling- the official Derby trophy maker. Here’s the catch…there are only 96 cups available (and if you’re not having it served in gold why drink it?) You must order in advance and pick up (along with the Julep) in person at Churchill Downs on Derby Day. In case you were wondering they also have 3 more extra special cups with 3 diamonds set in them. These 3 will be auctioned off and proceeds will benefit charity.
