Woodford Reserve Distillery in Versailles, Kentucky has been making the official Kentucky Derby Mint Julep since Kentucky Derby 131. Each year they pick a charity and donate the proceeds of these custom made mint juleps to that group. This year all proceeds benefit the Secretariat Foundation. The foundation was created by Mrs. Penny Chenery, who owned Secretariat, to support thoroughbred and equine-related industries.
