Distilled does Derby Day delightfully

May 15, 2016

(Say that 3x fast)

Another Derby Day came and went. And like most anything, this event gave us a reason to throw a party.

For those not lucky enough to fly to Kentucky for the weekend, we threw an epic Derby watching event with our friends from Brown-Forman (makers of Old Forester, Woodford Reserve, Jack Daniels  – stop us if you’ve heard of any of these…). They handed out swag, we served tasty concoctions made with their whiskey.

Tara and Derek shake things up a bit with special Mint Julep cocktails.

“Brown Derby Cocktail” (Old Forester 86 Proof, grapefruit juice, honey syrup; served up in a coup glass)

Guests were invited to dig out their best, most-feathery hats and join us for our 3rd annual Derby party.


We can always expect Co-Founder, Benjamin Wood, to show up in dapper duds.

Everyone sat at the edge of their seats for this one.

Annnd…if you were actually following the race, you would’ve seen some horse named “Nyquist” pull away from some other beast called “Gun Runner” and a stud that goes by “Exaggerator” to take the win. Good job, you four-legged creature.
