Paspaley Polo in the City with Woodford Reserve 2013

Paspaley Polo in the City returned to Centennial Park on the weekend. Despite the impending rain, elegantly-attired guests paraded on their way to their respective marquees for the yearly sport of kings.

Stepping into the Woodford Reserve pavilion beneath the wrought-iron canopy was like a visit to a beautiful southern home. Styled by AZB Creative, magnolias, hanging wisteria and elegant white roses adorned the equestrian-themed space and the black door marked 1812, payed homage to the year Woodford Reserve was established.

Delicious Woodford Reserve Bourbon cocktails were served throughout the day including the refreshing Kentucky Apple, a Julep-like drink with elderflower cordial, fresh lime juice, clapped mint and and a lime twist served in copper mugs. The Woodford Hook was a sweet mix of bourbon with Tuaca, fresh lemon juice, Herradura Agave nectar with a lemon twist, and the Woodford Reserve Old Fashioned was too good to resist and stop at just having one.

High profile guests included Kris Smith,Woodford Reserve Polo Ambassador and the face of Myer who rolled up his sleeves for a lesson in the perfect Woodford Reserve Old Fashioned by Stuart Reeves, Brown-Forman Brand Ambassador.

The rain eventually made a big splash and guests huddled under Woodford Reserve umbrellas sipping on more cocktails. The Sydney National Polo League won Paspaley Polo in the City with a 10-6 victory.

Paspaley Polo on the City was held on Saturday 16 November, 2013.
