Video Description

The Deighton Cup is proud to host the welcome return of an event that celebrates the most famous bourbon libations – the spirit of choice when at the track.

The perfect summer refreshments, these fabulous cocktail inspirations date back to the early 1800s and beyond. Mouth-watering beverages are designed and perfected over months by eager entrants only to be tested against a superb class of peers and judged by some of the finest palates in the city.

The Deighton Cup, along with Bulleit Bourbon and its judging panel of industry heavyweights are inviting the crème-de-la-crème of mixologists, barmen, and aspiring booze hounds to partake in the 4th annual Cocktail Jockey mixology competition. Entrants create their best variation on a classic bourbon indulgence selected by our Cocktail Director, Alex Black.

The prize? Racetrack fame, bragging rights and $1,000 cash for first place. The winner’s name and cocktail will be engraved on the one and only Boothby Julep trophy.
