WHY THESE DRINKS?
From the original Old Fashioned being created at the Pendennis Club, to the tens of thousands of Mint Juleps created every year at The Kentucky Derby, and the classic Seelbach cocktail bearing the name of the historic hotel. These cocktails are intrinsically connected with the history and spirit of Louisville drinking culture.
Looking at the very basis of what constitutes these cocktails, bartenders are able to exercise immense creativity in crafting unique variations on these classic drinks.
Drinks will be judged by three whiskey experts and a winner announced at the end of the day.
