Limited Edition Woodford Reserve Bottle Honors Kentucky Derby

woodfordhead

It’s the official bourbon of the Kentucky Derby so Woodford Reserve wanted a commemorative bottle for the 2016 Derby. This year’s limited edition features artwork from award-winning equine artist Thomas Allen Pauly. His painting “Barreling Down” is featured on the label of the Woodford Reserve bottle. The image features a closeup, impressionistic look at the big race as two thoroughbreds and jockeys are neck and neck. A bright blue Kentucky spring sky shines through in the background as the horses race towards the finish line. The neck band features crisp black and the distiller’s signature copper color with the Kentucky Derby 142 date and Pauly’s signature sealing the top of the bottle. A neck tag provides details about the product and the artist. “Woodford Reserve is honored to collaborate with an artist of such high caliber for this year’s commemorative Derby bottle,” says brand director Jason Kemp. “His years of experience, esteemed skillset in painting and passion for the equine industry correlate perfectly with the Kentucky Derby.”
