Kentucky Derby Commemorative Bottle Art

Front porch rocking chairs, bluegrass, whiskey and horse racing are some of things that come to mind when one thinks of Kentucky; the latter being perhaps the most common.

This month, Early Times Whisky is looking for the next artist whose work will grace the 2011 Early Times Mint Julep bottle with the “Early Times Mint Julep Bottle Artist Search.” For the past 23 years, this drink has proudly served as the Official Drink of the Kentucky Derby, with a commemorative artwork bottle released for the past 12 years.

Consumers can log on to submit their “What Derby Means to Me” artwork, as well as to see official rules and contest details.  The winner will win a VIP trip for two to the 2011 Kentucky Derby, $5,000 in cash, and have their artwork featured on the 2011 Early Times Mint Julep bottle.

Good luck!
