Host Your Virtual Kentucky Derby Party With Wild Turkey American Honey Liqueur
If you’re feeling the Derby blues, you can still break out your frilly fascinator and kick back with some bubbly this spring. While the Kentucky Derby has been postponed until September 5, Churchill Downs will host an all-day virtual race on May 2 to raise emergency relief funds for COVID-19. Make a day of it by throwing a virtual watch party and sip on a little Kentucky bourbon like Wild Turkey American Honey Liqueur.
The broadcast on May 2 from 3-6 pm will include the premiere of a brand new virtual horse race called The Kentucky Derby: Triple Crown Showdown. The setting of this computer-simulated race will feature the historic Twin Spires of Churchill Downs. We know you're going to miss the live-action ponies, but don't worry - the weekend will also include a re-airing of American Pharoah’s historic 2015 Triple Crown run. Check out the full schedule of events and bet on your favorite horse with a donation to the COVID-19 relief on Churchill Down’s website. You will be entered in a drawing for an “Ultimate Kentucky Derby Experience” during the rescheduled Kentucky Derby in September.

Wild Turkey American Honey Liqueur
Galloping down the straightaway, Wild Turkey American Honey Liqueur leads the bourbon pack during derby season. Made with real pure honey, you won’t find a better bourbon for your classic mint julep. Honey, baked bread, and cornmeal dominate the nose while the palate is characterized by honey, spice and lemon zest. The finish is clean and smooth. This is an award-winning American Bourbon named the World's Best Whisky three years in a row. Keep the derby traditions alive with an order from Cask Cartel.
Sugarlands Shine Butterscotch Gold Moonshine
If you find yourself all dressed up with nothing to drink, Sugarlands Shine Butterscotch Gold Moonshine is the winning spirit. Boasting flavors of brown sugar, caramel, and vanilla, Butterscotch Gold will warm your belly during the heat of the race. Your palette will ease into a long finish of hazelnut and lingering cream as your favorite horse takes their final lap. When the dust settles you will be reminded of summer days at the county fair snacking on kettle corn. Shine Butterscotch can be sipped slow and steady alongside your favorite traditional fare like fried chicken and bread pudding. Or mix up your favorite cocktails by substituting vodka with Shine Butterscotch for a decadent after-dinner treat. Learn more at Cask Cartel.
American Barrels Bourbon Whiskey
If your horse is in the lead, cheer them through the homestretch with American Barrels Bourbon Whiskey. This eye-catching bottle comes with a striking visual to accompany the taste. Molded after a shotgun shell, the top of the bottle is adorned with a coiled rattlesnake that’s reminiscent of the 1775 Gadsden flag that was designed during the American Revolution. The taste is impressive - with a Goldilocks flavor and just the right amount of oak. It has an ultra-smooth finish with notes of dark cherry. An expert pick for your virtual derby party, order American Barrels Bourbon Whiskey at Cask Cartel.
