LOUISVILLE, KY - Adding to its reputation as the signature bourbon of Thoroughbred racing, Woodford Reserve®, the “Official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby®” is honoring the country’s favorite horse race with the release of its 2013 Kentucky Derby commemorative bottle. A product of the Woodford Reserve Distillery in Versailles, Kentucky, this year’s limited-edition bottle features the artwork of Oregon-based painter Eric Bowman.
Bowman’s picture on the bottle depicts a crisp, sunny Kentucky Derby day, with blue skies over the historic Twin Spires. A close-up of two horses are shown racing neck and neck down the track in front of the spires, kicking up dirt as they fight towards the finish line. Two jockeys in colorful silks are saddled on the horses, galloping them towards the prize.
