A Whisky Wall of Wonder!

Maker’s Mark Private Selection

LexArts 50th Anniversary Artisan Blend


EVERYBODY WINS Bottle Selection


Online Auction


In celebration of LexArts’ 50th Anniversary, we are extremely honored to have been selected to participate in the Maker’s Mark Private Selection program. LexArts will receive a full barrel of ‘Private Select’ Maker’s Mark bourbon which, at maturity, will yield over two hundred 750ml bottles.


The LexArts team, along with our friends from Baird Private Wealth Management and Keeneland (sponsors of the 50th Anniversary celebration), spent a full day at the distillery in Loretto creating the LexArts 50th Anniversary Artisan Blend. And we think it’s spectacular.


LexArts issued a call for art and has selected a group of 100 local artists to paint two bottles each as a contribution to our annual Fund for the Arts Campaign. Each artist will receive a special paint kit, compliments of DecoArt. The resulting 200 painted, decorated, re-imagined and adorned bottles will be creatively displayed on the Whisky Wall of Wonder at the LexArts 50th Anniversary Celebration on December 2 at Keeneland. One hundred of the bottles will be available that evening as a bottle selection. The remaining will be available via an online auction coming soon.


Don’t miss your opportunity to own one (or more!) of these one-of-a-kind highly collectible works of art.


We are extremely grateful for these artists and their contributions of exceedingly valuable time and talent that will help us continue to nourish the arts in Lexington.
