Am I crazy in thinking the only people who drink mint juleps are polite southern gentlemen in white suits at the horse track? Stereotypes aside, The Woodford Reserve $1,000 Mint Julep Cup will convince you to make the switch from Everclear cocktails to the mint julep with one glance of this new spectacular barware collection.
The $1,000 price tag is there for a reason—each individually numbered cup features hand-engraved roses with a gold-plated crest paying homage to the early days of horse racing.
Every set sold will benefit the Wounded Warrior Equestrian Program which aids injured horses back to health instead of, you know, turning them into glue. Too soon?
If you don't get your hands on the cups, we highly recommend Woodford Reserve as a whole—they're the official whiskey of the Kentucky Derby and a damn fine spirit to have on your desk.
