LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- For the past 26 years, the Early Times Mint Julep has proudly served as the "Official Drink of the Kentucky Derby®."  In celebration of this, Early Times Kentucky Whisky continues its tradition with the release of the 2013 commemorative Kentucky Derby bottle.

Available beginning in March 2013, the one-liter pre-mix bottle will be available in limited quantities throughout the United States for a suggested retail price of $14.99.

The artwork on this year's Kentucky Derby 139® bottle features renowned equine artist Celeste Susany from Saratoga Springs, NY, whose paintings have graced the Early Times bottles for many years.  Entitled "The Derby Dance," this year's painting depicts the up and down, back and forth "dance" horses and jockeys engage in during the race. 

Shown around the bottle are horses painted at different heights, depicting the feeling of flight. The front of the bottle features a horse galloping high in the air towards the finish line. The jockey is shown on the number four horse wearing red and yellow silks with a yellow saddle cloth. The historic Twin Spires stand majestically in the background.

"The Early Times Mint Julep bottle has truly become a collectible among art, horseracing, and whisky fans," said Therese McGuire, brand manager for Early Times Kentucky Whisky.

"We are proud to once again feature Celeste's art work on this year's bottle. We know it will be a must-have for Derby parties as the perfect way to serve a delicious mint julep in less than ten seconds."

During this year's Kentucky Derby week, more than 120,000 Early Times Mint Juleps are expected to be served at Churchill Downs®. Over the past 26 years, more than 2.5 million Early Times Mint Juleps have been served between Kentucky Oaks® and Derby Days at Churchill Downs. This year's Kentucky Derby presented by Yum! Brands will take place Saturday, May 4, 2013.
