Maker’s Mark, the official bourbon of the Breeders’ Cup, has produced a unique commemorative Breeders’ Cup bottle with proceeds to support the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund (PDJF). The limited-edition bottle marks the second time this year Maker’s Mark has partnered with Keeneland, which will host the Breeders’ Cup World Championships Nov. 6-7. The earlier commemorative bottle released by Maker’s Mark before Keeneland’s Summer Meet in July sold out with those proceeds also benefiting PDJF.
“This gorgeous Maker’s Mark bottle is a wonderful way for our fans to celebrate the Breeders’ Cup at Keeneland and to benefit the important work of the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund,” said Keeneland President and CEO Bill Thomason. “We especially thank our partner, Maker’s Mark, for their decades-long support of Keeneland and Thoroughbred racing.”
The bottle is white and features the Breeders’ Cup 2020 logo, a green wax Keeneland medallion, and a green and gold Keeneland strip stamp over purple wax sealing the bottle in the bourbon’s trademark style. The bottles will go on sale in limited quantities in Kentucky on Friday, Oct. 30.
