The Mint Julep originated in the Southern United States, probably during the eighteenth century. U.S. Senator Henry Clay of Kentucky introduced the drink to Washington, D.C., at the Round Robin Bar in the famous Willard Hotel during his residence in the city.The word, julep itself is derived from the Persian word گلاب (Golâb), meaning rose water. Jerry Thomas' Bartenders Guide (1887) includes a recipe for the mint julep allowing for brandy, gin or whiskey.
Since 1938, The Mint Julep has been promoted by Churchill Downs as the official drink of the Kentucky Derby.
