Top 5 Kentucky Bourbons for Derby Day

blantons

The fastest two minutes in sports are almost here! Derby Day is coming up and what better way to enjoy the race than with a refreshing mint julep? We were inspired by this tasty cocktail earlier in the week, and it has been a tradition at Churchill Downs for almost a century. Bourbon is mixed with sugar, crushed ice, and fresh mint for a delicious warm-weather drink. So put on your hats and place your bets because these bottles are the best Kentucky Bourbons we could rustle up.

Buffalo Trace | A favorite for mixed drinks, this bourbon is made by the same distillery as legendary Pappy van Winkle. Aromas of sweet cream and honey mingle with tastes of pepper and sherry. A hint of peppermint on the finish makes this the ideal julep ingredient. $36

Eagle Rare | Aged for a minimum of 10 years and delightfully complex. Hay, leather, toast, and molasses are just a few of the unique flavors that that hit the nose and tongue. $38

Whiskey Sister | Heady vanilla and warm caramel fill the palate, cut nicely by spicy oak tannin. At only 80 proof, it’s good for drinking all day. $27

1792 Ridgemont Reserve | This bourbon, named for the year Kentucky became a state, is aged for 8 years in charred barrels. It’s rich, velvety texture and tropical fruit aromas make this bottle a winner. $38

Blanton’s Single Barrel | The world’s first single barrel bourbon, featuring a horse and rider figurine on it’s stopper. This classic bottle has notes of orange peel, toffee, and clove. $47
