A Snapshot of the 2019 Design

This year, the limited-edition bottle showcases the captivating work of Keith Anderson, a self-taught artist who has designed the Derby bottle for Woodford Reserve since 2003. Each year, Anderson, a Louisville native, brings a new perspective and a fresh take on the iconic horse race.

The 2019 Derby bottle depicts an on-track scene where jockeys thunder down the home stretch, their horses’ muscles straining and nostrils flaring. Each rider reaches for their advantage, while their brightly colored silks ripple in the breeze, mirroring the unbridled enthusiasm of the crowd.

The Bourbon Inside the Bottle

While the exterior of the bottle pays homage to the illustrious Kentucky Derby, it’s the quality of what’s inside that makes the Woodford Reserve bottle truly special. This isn’t just a great looking collectible piece – it’s also packed with premium bourbon, marked by its rich, full-bodied flavors with notes of dried fruit, vanilla, and toasted oak.

Woodford Reserve’s Kentucky Derby bourbon is crafted using a grain recipe of 72% corn, 18% rye, and 10% malted barley. The result is a nuanced whiskey, full of depth and complexity – much like the iconic race it celebrates.

Where to Get the 2019 Derby Bottle

The Woodford Reserve 2019 Kentucky Derby bottle is now available in select locations across the United States. It’s also stocked at the Woodford Reserve Distillery’s gift shop if you get the chance to visit. Not only does it make for a fantastic collector’s item, but it also fittingly marks another year of the thrilling sport of horse racing, all while offering an exceptional bourbon experience.
