Interesting facts

Long before the Julep, silver drinking cups were common in the southern US states. They were given as awards at competitions, weddings, christenings and even horseraces because they represented success. They weren't Julep cups, but rather plain silver tumblers or beakers.

History of the drink

According to popular opinion, the Julep began in or around Persia and then made its way to Europe (some claim Southern France) where mint was replaced with rose petals. The Mint Julep as we know it today is thought to have crossed the Atlantic after Cognac was substituted by Peach Brandy and eventually Whisky.
