Louisville, Kentucky (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
Oversized and over the top hats and fancy dresses aren’t the only things to make a big splash at this year’s Kentucky Derby. The Bonita Sprits Company and their celebrity partner hip hop star, actor, and now emerging entrepreneur Xzibit will turn up their ultra-sleek and luxury top shelf tequila, Bonita Platinum, in this year’s gift bags for several high society socialites and celebrities to enjoy. The Kentucky Derby is held on the first Saturday of May each year at the world famous Churchill Downs Racetrack in Louisville, Kentucky. For many professional horse trainers, owners, and jockeys the dreams of racing in the Kentucky Derby is the equivalent of the NFL’s Super Bowl which catapults the sport on a platform that has both national and international reach for the world to experience what has come to be known as the fastest two minutes in sports.
“We are very excited to be a part of this year’s festivities,” stated Bonita Spirits Company, CEO Chris Brown. This year’s event will boast a rotund list of major celebrities, professional athletes, and entertainment personalities. Megastars such as Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, Kevin Hart, Angela Bassett, Jennifer Hudson, University of Kentucky’s Coach Calipari, Steve Young, Jerry Rice, and a host of others will be the recipients of the gift bags and have an opportunity to sip on the world’s only five-times distilled luxury tequila. Bonita Platinum Tequila’s Inner Circle (http://bonitaspirits.com/member-page/) hopes to join the ranks of this week’s derby champion left standing in this year’s Winners Circle as they anticipate hitting it off big with the celebrity attendees. “We are making some major moves. I’m just glad that we’ve had the type of positive response that we have had from those who’ve tried the product. I couldn’t ask for anything more,” states Hip Hop pioneer and celebrity partner Xzibit.
