The bottle, which will go on sale Friday, was produced in a batch of 8,500 available. It is the third in a series of Louisville-themed bottles that will help the niversity of Louisville build a new academic center on the south end of its football stadium.
Rob Samuels of Maker's Mark expects sales of the Jurich bottle to be brisk.
"The last two sold out within minutes so I would recommend our fans get there before the stores open," Samuels said.
