First declared by the city of Louisville in 2013, Mint Julep Month boasts thirty days of original recipes, exclusive bar specials, and Derby-inspired events. Count down to the Kentucky Derby with Garden & Gun by celebrating the classic Southern cocktail leading up to “the most exciting two minutes in sports”. Bars and restaurants across the nation will help toast Mint Julep Month with custom cocktails and special events from now until the Derby.
This year, in addition to partnering with bars and restaurants across the country, Garden & Gun is proud to support grassroots nonprofit organization Kentucky Waterways Alliance. The Bluegrass region is home to 97% of the world's bourbon production, with Kentucky's clean, limestone-rich water at the heart of every barrel. Kentucky Waterways Alliance works with distillers on initiatives to protect this treasured resource, upholding the state's tradition of exceptional spirits and further supporting local communities.
Wherever you are, we hope you'll join us in raising a glass.
