The Supreme Court Seal Mint Julep Cup


Our Mint julep cup is a Kentucky derby tradition!  This stately cup is based on designs by Lexington craftsmen Asa Blanchard and William and Archibald Cooper.  For over 100 years, Kentuckians have given, received, and used their exquisite cup at all the most important events.

Tips for Making Your Best Mint Julep

  • Muddle the mint—The intention is to release the essential oils, not tear the leaves to bits.
  • Double-duty muddler—Use your muddler to make crushed ice. Place ice cubes in a Lewis bag (a cloth bag made specifically for this purpose) or wrap them in a towel and whack it with your muddler until the cubes become finely crushed ice. This is a wonderful and safe stress reliever, too.
  • Stirred, not shaken—Once you build the drink, take the time to stir it gently until the glass gets frosty. This should take at least 30 seconds, but the longer you do it, the better.
  • Invest in the bourbon—It's best to choose one of the higher-end brands for the simple fact that bourbon is the drink's only liquid. Though it's sweetened and flavored, you'll primarily taste whiskey.
  • Aromatherapy—Before garnishing with the mint sprig, gently clap it between your hands to release the aromatic oils.
