LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – With the Kentucky Derby fast approaching, you can have one of the best mint juleps ever – if you can afford it.
On Monday, Woodford Reserve officials were at historic Churchill Downs to unveil this year's $1,000 Woodford Reserve Mint Julep Cup.
Only 75 of the exclusive cups will be sold beginning April 16. All the money raised goes to the Heart of a Horse Foundation.
"This is the 7th year of the Woodford Reserve $1,000 mint julep program," said Phil Lynch of Brown-Forman, "and so far, we have raised more than $329,000 for horse-related charities."
All buyers or designated proxies must be in attendance at Churchill Downs on Kentucky Derby Day, May 5, 2012 to receive their cup. The juleps will be made with Woodford Reserve bourbon, ice from France, mint from California and two types of sugar.
