Hartman’s Distilling to attempt Guinness World Record for Largest Mint Julep Cocktail

Hartman’s Distilling has been given the green light by Guinness World Record to try to break the standing record for the world’s largest mint julep cocktail. The previous record is 158 gallons. Now, distillers at Hartman’s will attempt to concoct a mint julep that will be 207 gallons and approximately 5 feet tall.

This uniquely distilled feat will be orchestrated during Hartman’s Fifth Annual Kentucky Derby Day event, on May 4, from 2pm to 7pm.

“Attempting to break this record was the perfect way to commemorate the 150th Derby and our Fifth Annual celebration,” said Justin Hartman, owner and president of Hartman’s Distilling Co. “We are excited to attempt this and bring this recognition to Buffalo while also donating to a good cause.”

In order to break the world record, the giant mint julep must contain the exact same proportion of ingredients to that of a regular sized mint julep. In the case of the Hartman’s Guinness attempt, the larger-than-life mint julep will contain 35 gallons of bourbon, 9 gallons of simple syrup, over 400 pounds of crushed ice, and 10 pounds of mint.

Once the record is (hopefully) broken, the colossal mint julep will be poured into glasses and sold to the thirsty crowd, with one dollar from every mint julep sold during the entire day being donated to the Buffalo Therapeutic Riding Center.

What better way to enjoy the 2024 Kentucky Derby than by attending a party with such highly spirited aspirations?

It’s time, once again, to get Buffalo into the Guinness Book of World Records. And this time, it’s a delicious, cool and refreshing way to participate.

Hartman’s Distilling Co. Fifth Annual Kentucky Derby Day party is a free event for all to attend and watch the races from 2-7pm. The signature event includes live music, food and drink specials, and giveaways.
