Hundreds Line Up For Commemorative Bottles

The U.K. Maker's Mark Commemorative Bottles went on sale Friday morning, and hundreds lined up in the rain to try and get their hands on one.

This year's bottle features former UK coach Joe B. Hall. Only 18,000 "Joe-B" bottles were sold. The bottles had sold out at all three Lexington Liquor Barn locations, by 9:30 Friday morning.

Many people stood in long lines in the early morning hours, in the rain, just to try and get one.

Fans who were lucky enough to purchase one of the bottle will have a chance to get them autographed next Friday at Keeneland, the same day as the Maker's Mark Mile.
