Rick Pitino Gets Likeness on Commemorative Maker’s Mark Bottle (Photo)


Universities and alcohol don’t generally mix well, but the University of Lousiville and Maker’s Mark have come together for a good cause.

Lousiville basketball coach Rick Pitino‘s face will grace special commemorative bottles of Maker’s Mark Kentucky straight bourbon. Only 12,600 were made to be sold, with the profits going toward the school’s planned Academic Center of Excellence.

Pitino will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame in September. He guided the Cardinals to their third NCAA national title with a 74-68 win over Michigan this year. [tweet https://twitter.com/KKcards/statuses/341948376616677376 align=’center’]
