The Woodford Reserve Distillery sits on what was once an old Distillery founded by Elijah and his son, Oscar Pepper, in the 1800s. Under the stewardship of Oscar and Master Distiller James Crow, their distillery reformed and modernized the process of producing whiskey in the United States — the distillery revolutionized the concepts of sour mash and yeast propagation.

Nearly two centuries later, Chris Morris — Woodford Reserve's seventh master distiller — pays homage to Pepper and Crow with Woodford Reserve 2016 Kentucky Derby Limited Edition Bourbon Whiskey. Morris, who began working at Woodford Reserve Distillery when he was just 16 years old, is one of the foremost experts in the production and maturation of bourbon and samples up to 180 unique whiskies each day. “It's about pursuing flavor through modernizing old practices,” says the 55 year-old master distiller.

Woodford Reserve 2016 Kentucky Derby Limited Edition Bourbon Whiskey is a traditional bottling of Woodford Reserve Bourbon, and features the artwork of award-winning equine artist Thomas Allen Pauly. Born and bred in Chicago, Pauly is the official artist American Pharoah, the famous thoroughbred who won last year’s Triple Crown. Pauly’s painting “Barreling Down” is featured on this year’s bottle, as is a crisp black and copper (Woodford Reserve’s signature color) necker bearing the date of the 142nd Kentucky Derby as well as Pauly’s signature.

“Woodford Reserve is honored to collaborate with an artist of such high caliber for this year's commemorative Derby bottle,” said Jason Kempf, Woodford Reserve brand director. “His years of experience, esteemed skill set in painting and passion for the equine industry correlate perfectly with the Kentucky Derby.”
