Proceeds from 99 collectible gold cups to benefit jockey-related charities
Louisville, Ky., April 21, 2009 - On the first Saturday in May at the Kentucky Derby, Woodford Reserve bourbon will honor jockeys with the world's most exclusive mint julep cup. A collection of 99 sterling silver cups plated in 24-karat gold - three adorned with diamonds and signed by Triple Crown(R) jockeys Ron Turcotte, Jean Cruguet and Steve Cauthen - the Woodford Reserve $1,000 Mint Julep Cup is available online from April 13-29. Proceeds will benefit The Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund and The Robby Albarado Foundation.
Owners of the cup will enjoy a julep featuring sugar from the Reunion Island of France; Turkish mint grown near the Euphrates River; ice made of water from an aquifer in Central Norway; and the Master Distiller's personal selection of Woodford Reserve bourbon.
Each cup comes with an oak box crafted from the same wood as Woodford Reserve barrels and lined with black satin. The cups will be available at www.woodfordreservemintjulep.com.
The stakes are high. Please enjoy Woodford Reserve responsibly.
