Liquor stores across Kentucky were packed Friday morning as Maker’s Mark released their Triple Crown Justify Maker’s Mark bottle.
Liquor Barn said people were camped out overnight in Lexington to get one of the limited-edition bottles.
Each was hand dipped in green wax, instead of the traditional Maker’s Mark red.
Sales from the bottles benefit the Kentucky Derby Museum and Parkinson’s research.
Justify’s team — trainer Bob Baffert, jockey Mike Smith, Winstar President & CEO Elliot Walden and Maker’s Mark Distiller Bill Samuels — will autograph bottles at the Kentucky Derby Museum on Monday, Oct. 29.
There are only 1,000 tickets available. They go on sale Tuesday, Oct. 23 at noon on the Derby Museum’s website. Each ticket is $26.50.
