Woodford Reserve® is celebrating 20 years as the official bourbon of the Kentucky Derby with the release of its 2019 commemorative bottle. This limited-edition bottle features artwork from Keith A. Anderson for the second year in a row.
The Kentucky Derby bottle has become an annual collector’s item since it was first released in 1999. The first four years of the Derby bottle featured simple graphics that celebrated Derby. Beginning in 2003, Woodford Reserve started featuring the work of artists on the bottle.
Woodford Reserve Distiller’s Select is a super-premium, small batch bourbon crafted at the historic Woodford Reserve Distillery, located in the heart of Kentucky’s Bluegrass Region. It is a bourbon of exceptional richness, depth, and character with a smooth, well-rounded finish.
