Maker's Mark To Produce Special Limited-Edition Rick Pitino Bourbon Bottle

Quite an honor.

Forget being on a Wheaties box -- you know you've really made it when you get a limited-edition bourbon bottle made with your face on it -- or at least that's how it works in Kentucky.

Maker's Mark, the brand known for its famous Kentucky Bourbon Whisky, is based in Loretto, Kentucky, and has been placing special sports figures from the state on bottles for years. Past figures on the bottle include Charlie Strong, John Calipari, and Rick Pitino.

But after winning the the national championship in April with the Louisville Cardinals, Pitino will get to be on the bottle yet again -- a rare honor. Who wants to celebrate?
