Each year, Woodford Reserve selects a charitable organization to receive proceeds from their limited edition Mint Julep Cups sold at the Kentucky Derby, and this year The Jennifer Lawrence Fund is the beneficiary. Each $1,000 silver julep cup or $2,500 gold-plated cup is presented in a special wooden box, lined with silk custom-designed by Bourbon Cousins, two Louisville natives.

Woodford Reserve Master Distiller Chris Morris demonstrates the high-end mint julep recipe, while Bourbon Cousins’ Pam Houston and Claudia Sandman show off their Woodford-inspired Derby bowties, pocket squares and more.
