Derby kickoff party with Woodford Reserve


It was a special Derby experience at the Old 502 Winery, as the Brotherhood held a Derby Kickoff party in partnership with Woodford Reserve, the Presenting Sponsor of the Kentucky Derby!


In addition to a tasting of Woodford Reserve, Woodford Reserve Double Oaked and Woodford Reserve Rye, our friends at Woodford served up cocktails to get us in that Derby spirit.  We also had a tasting station featuring bourbon barrel aged wines from the Old 502 Winery.  It wouldn't be Kentucky without fried chicken, so we had plenty on-hand to satisfy our hunger.  Several vendors were on-hand offering a variety of men's hats, ties and other accessories.  Participating vendors included: 

  • Pocket Knives by LuckyPeanutGoods - Made with wood from bourbon barrels
  • StoryWood Bowties - Made with wood from historic distilleries
  • Men's Derby Hats - Presented by the Mysterious Rack
  • Bowties by Peake Ties - featuring Equestrian / Derby themes
  • Derby-style suits, sport coats and dress shirts - from Chris Long of Dillard's
  • Belts, wallets, coasters and other leather goods - from Clayton & Crume
  • and we had a variety of Bourbon Brotherhood items including polo shirts, tee shirts, hats, flasks and coasters.


And of course we had fantastic door prizes as always.
