Enjoy Derby Day with Delicious J. Henry & Sons Bourbon!

This Saturday, J. Henry and Sons will be hosting VIP guests on our farm for Derby Day! This once-a-year event is a chance to get out, enjoy the spring weather, and view the fastest two minutes in sports the way it was meant to be—with good friends, great drinks, and a couple of hours to unwind.

If you aren’t yet sure whether you’re going to attend or not, we encourage you to RSVP and take advantage of this opportunity. Stop by, and you’ll find we have…

Great Derby Day Drinks

Being that we’re known for producing a great Wisconsin craft bourbon, it’s probably no surprise we make a mean mint julep. We use a secret recipe that’s sweet, refreshing, and perfect for a spring afternoon. If you haven’t tried one of our juleps before, you might not have any idea of what you’re missing. And, you can even buy a bottle of our bourbon to take home, so you can make your own cocktails the next time you have guests you want to impress.

The Perfect Kentucky Derby Experience

Along with big screen TVs that ensure you won’t miss any of the action, we will have refreshments and activities for you to enjoy in the time leading up to the race. From Derby food delights to croquet on our lawn, you’ll feel like you were down South ready to watch the race in person. The best thing about Derby Day is the experience, and sharing it with others who are also having a good time. Don’t miss out on your chance to join in the fun! Wear your hats, your bow ties, and your fascinators. Place your wagers and cheer your horse to win. Who knows, maybe we will have another Triple Crown winner!

Two Kentucky Favorites With a Local Twist

Like the Derby itself, bourbon may have its roots down in Kentucky, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it elsewhere. We couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate the world’s most famous horse race than by pairing it with another Southern favorite that’s been given a local twist.

J. Henry & Sons Wisconsin Bourbon was inspired by a love of handmade spirits and an unforgettable trip to the Bluegrass State. Now we’re sharing our award-winning drink with the rest of Wisconsin one bottle at a time. If you want to see how we’ve taken a classic and made it our own, you owe it to yourself to stop by our family farm. Make your reservation for a tour and tasting today. We will be expanding hours for the summer, soon.
