Early Times Mint Julep Releases Commemorative Derby Bottle

Early Times Named "Official Drink of Kentucky Derby 140®"

LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For the past 27 years, the Early Times Mint Julep has proudly served as the "Official Drink of the Kentucky Derby®."  In celebration of this, Early Times Kentucky Whisky continues its tradition with the release of the 2014 commemorative Kentucky Derby bottle.

Early Times Mint Julep, the Official Drink of the Kentucky Derby, releases its limited edition Kentucky Derby bottle.

Available beginning in March 2014, the one-liter pre-mix bottle will be available in limited quantities throughout the United States for a suggested retail price of $15.99.

The artwork on this year's Kentucky Derby 140® bottle features the work of acclaimed artist and Louisville native, Ashley Cecil. Ashley's stunning work, "Time For the Roses" celebrates the moment when the traditional garland of more than 400 red roses is presented to the Kentucky Derby winner. For more information, please visit www.ashleycecil.com.

The excitement of the Winner's Circle is captured on the bottle with an image of the winning jockey sitting atop his horse draped in a garland of roses. Beside the horse is a woman presenting a bouquet of roses to the jockey and several other onlookers in the background.

"We are excited to feature a new artist this year and feel that Ashley's work perfectly captures the most emotional moment for a winning jockey," said Therese McGuire, brand manager for Early Times Kentucky Whisky. "Not only is the Early Times Mint Julep bottle a work of art, but also a must-have for every Kentucky Derby party to provide a quick and easy mint julep."

During this year's Kentucky Derby week, more than 120,000 Early Times Mint Juleps are expected to be served at Churchill Downs®. Over the past 27 years, more than 2.5 million Early Times Mint Juleps have been served between Kentucky Oaks® and Derby Days at Churchill Downs. This year's Kentucky Derby will take place Saturday, May 3, 2014.
