KO Distilling’s Inaugural Derby Day Celebration

Saturday, May 4, 2019

3:30pm – 7:30pm

Calling all lovers of mint juleps, beautiful hats, and the Kentucky Derby — KO Distilling is celebrating an evening dedicated to the derby, and culture of Church Hill Downs!

Show off your spirit by wearing your finest derby hat to be entered into the Derby Hat Competition!

No need to bring your check book to place a bet — enter in a free raffle
by betting on who you think will win the 145th Kentucky Derby!

Sip on a mint julep and other derby themed cocktails from our welcoming tasting room,
or try a flight of our award-winning spirits. See how spirits are made by taking a free distillery tour,
and enjoy 20% off on all KO merchandise (offer not applicable on alcohol).

Enjoy a glass of local wine from Paradise Springs Winery or a chilled pint of beer from Brew Republic!
Chow down on gourmet snacking from Popcorn Monkey!

— Special Guest —
The culture and history of Churchill Downs is centered around the love for horses. These intelligent, majestic creatures also provide care and love back to us. North Light Coaching — a private therapeutic coaching practice featuring the Equine Gestalt Coaching Method (EGCM), will be on-site to share information about their unique organization.

Attention all KO PlanKOwners!
Be sure to stop over at the PlankOwners booth during the event to pick up your party favor!
