Keith Anderson had worked in Brown-Forman’s Bourbon Street Cafe for more than 12 years – but had a passion and a talent for painting. Two years ago he summoned the courage to approach Senior Vice President Mark Bacon to ask how he might get his art on the special release Derby bottle.
Bacon took one look at his paintings and was immediately impressed. “Sometimes we overlook the very talent that’s right in front of us” said Bacon.
Keith’s painting first graced the 2018 Woodford Derby bottle – and it was so well received – he was asked to paint a new scene for the 2019 bottle.
Keith will be joining us at the store this Monday (April 22nd) from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM to sign bottles and share his story. Don’t miss your chance to meet and talk with Keith and go away with a personalized Derby memory!
