Woodford Reserve®, the “Official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby®” is honoring this year’s “Run for the Roses”™ with the release of its 2015 Kentucky Derby commemorative bottle. This year’s limited-edition Woodford Reserve Kentucky Derby bottle features the artwork from elite equine artist Carole Andreen-Harris.
Harris’ main image on the bottle is bold and vibrant, featuring six horses with their jockeys in colorful silks rounding the first turn on their quest to win the big race. The historic Twin Spires are centered prominently in the background alongside an image of the packed stands of fans cheering them on to victory.
The neck band features a diamond pattern of light mint and Woodford Reserve’s signature copper color as well as the Kentucky Derby 141 date sealing the top of the commemorative bottle. A bottleneck tag provides consumers with details about the product and the artist.
“Woodford Reserve is honored to have such an esteemed equine artist design this year’s commemorative Derby bottle artwork,” said Jason Kempf, Woodford Reserve brand director. “Her incredible talent and love of horseracing truly captures the spirit and passion of the Kentucky Derby.”
The commemorative liter-size bottle will be available nationwide on shelves in early April. Suggested retail price, depending on market, is $43.99.
Woodford Reserve has been the “Official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby” for the past 17 years. It also sponsors a Grade I stakes race, The Woodford Reserve Turf Classic, which runs on Kentucky Derby Day, May 2, 2015, and has become one of Thoroughbred racing’s premier turf events with a $500,000 purse.
