For the fourth consecutive year in a row, the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience has released a limited-edition bottle of Single Barrel Bourbon which includes a commemorative 2020 Gold Pagasus Pin, sealed in emerald green wax on the neck.
Both the wax and the special gold and green label have been designed specially for the Kentucky Derby, including the festival logo and pin.
Evan Williams Bourbon Experience artisanal distiller, Jodie Filiatreau, and Kentucky Derby Festival president and CEO, Matt Gibson, unveiled the official 2020 pin and limited-edition bottle at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience by personally hand-dipping two of the 600 limited-edition bottles.
The limited-edition is available for purchase at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience for $74.99, as well as at selected retailers.
The Bourbon is a 2012 vintage and was bottled at 113 proof, combining the commemoration of both the 65th Kentucky Derby and the 48th Pegasus Pin anniversary, with each bottle being labelled with the date it was put in oak to age, the barrel number and the date it was bottled.
“The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience is proud to partner yet again with the Kentucky Derby Festival to share the unique Kentucky spirit that makes this time of year so exciting in the Bluegrass State,” said Jodie. “Join us as we raise a toast to Kentucky’s heritage and usher in the 2020 Kentucky Derby.”
“This partnership with Evan Williams showcases two of Kentucky’s favorite things – the Derby Festival and Bourbon,” said Matt. “Just like the Pegasus Pins, we know fans will want to add this special edition bottle to their collection too.”
