Design and Build an exact replica of the official Kentucky Derby Mint Julep glass.
SCOPE OF WORK
Weber Group provided design, build and specialty fabrication services for Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby to create the World’s Largest Mint Julep Glass, the official drink of the Kentucky Derby. An exact replica of the Official Kentucky Derby Mint Julep Glass, the 6 ft. tall fully functioning glass holds 206 gallons of Mint Julep and is capable of serving over 12,000 Mint Juleps to guests. The iconic piece of glassware is made of food-grade acrylic. A giant stir stick conceals a battery operated pumping system to keep drinks fresh and even has a tap for serving. An over sized sprig of mint garnishes the creation.
