A Glimpse into Woodford Reserve’s 2019 Kentucky Derby Bottle

Celebrating this tradition, Woodford Reserve has given us a first look at its limited edition Kentucky Derby bottle for spring 2019. Brace yourself because it is as fetching as the thoroughbred race horses themselves.
The Artistry on the Bottle
First off, the deciding factor for many a bourbon lover, is the aesthetics of the bottle. True to form, Woodford Reserve has not disappointed. The 2019 Kentucky Derby bottle flaunts a magnificent piece of artwork in full color. Local Louisville artist, Keith Anderson, has beautifully captured the heart and soul of the Derby.
A striking image of thoroughbreds storming down the stretch, with jockeys urging them on, graces the front of the bottle. The horses are painted in deep, rich hues, injecting life, vigor, and desperation into the scene. It’s more than just a picture; it’s the essence of Derby, bottled.
The Bourbon Itself
Nobody buys a bourbon based strictly on the looks of the bottle, though. The rich, amber liquid inside is what seals the deal. As a premium scale bourbon, Woodford Reserve has only the finest to offer.
The bourbon inside the 2019 Kentucky Derby bottle is a prime example of Woodford Reserve’s mastery over the craft. It introduces itself with full-bodied undertones of dried fruit and mint, before going on to tease your tastebuds with a spicy, citrusy edge. The finish is smooth and chocolaty, making for an overall complex and satisfying experience that will have you coming back for more.
