Early Times Mint Julep releases commemorative Derby bottle

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Derby tradition that's become a collector's edition is being served up.

Early Times Mint Julep just released a commemorative Kentucky Derby bottle.

The painting by equine artist Celeste Susany depicts the up and down, back and forth dance horse and jockeys engage in during the race.

For the last 26 years it's been the official drink of the Derby.

During that time more than 2.5 million mint juleps have been served between the Oaks and Derby and Churchill Downs.
