No Horsing Around. Derby Day is Coming & We’re Already Celebrating

Founding Farmers is ready for the Kentucky Derby, and if you haven’t stopped by, you should, because we are already celebrating what has been coined “the greatest two minutes in sports.” We are pre-gaming for the Derby all week with several takes on the Mint Julep, the traditional cocktail of Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby for nearly a century now, using our very own Founding Spirits American Whiskey, including: “Never Bitter” Julep with Founding Spirits American Whiskey, mint, and bitters, topped with Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro; TR Julep with Founding Spirits American Whiskey, mint, and bitters; and the 1924 Julep with Founding Spirits American Whiskey, mint, aromatic bitters, and cherry.
