Prep for the 140th Kentucky Derby is already underway and in a few short weeks, Louisville will explode with pre-Derby events, including the pinnacle of pyrotechnics, Thunder over Louisville.
One of our favorite finds this year to help you prep for Derby Day activities is the newly designed Mint Julep Recipe Cup from Louisville Stone Pottery.
As stoneware jugs were the popular bourbon containers for consumer sales in the early 1800’s, it’s fitting that the Kentucky Mint Julep is honored by the pottery company with well-steeped roots in Kentucky traditions.
Inscribed with the perfect, Derby classic Kentucky Mint Julep recipe, the cup has a band of green at the top and bottom and is finished in a clear overglaze that allows the clay’s natural brown tones to show through.
Grab your best bourbon, stock up on fresh mint and savor the heritage of Kentucky’s finest. For more information or to purchase the Mint Julep Recipe Cup, visit http://www.louisvillestoneware.com/9oz-julep-cup-julep-recipe.html
