Maker's Mark releasing bottle in honor of Triple Crown winner Justify
LORETTO, Ky. (WDKY) - Maker's Mark will release a bottle honoring 2018 Triple Crown winner Justify.
The commemorative bottle not only pays tribute to Justify's accomplishments but also raises money for charitable causes. Proceeds will benefit both the Kentucky Derby Museum and a research fund for Parkinson’s disease.
The limited-edition bottles will be available in the fall. The bottle is dipped in green wax in honor of Justify's green, white and black jockey silks worn by jockey Mike Smith in the Kentucky Derby.
A signing event for the commemorative bottle will be held at the Kentucky Derby Museum during the week before the Breeders' Cup races at Churchill Downs this fall.
