BOURBONS AND SPIRITS FROM KENTUCKY’S FINEST – INCLUDING A NEW LINEUP OF CRAFT DISTILLERIES
On Saturday, August 19th two of Louisville’s most spirited social groups, the Whisky Chicks and the Bourbon Brotherhood, came together to host the 4th Annual Bourbon Mixer. Proceeds from this year’s event benefited Best Buddies Kentucky, an organization that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Bourbon lovers were invited to share their passion for Kentucky’s native spirit through sample tastings and cocktails specially created for the evening by those who know the spirit best – our sponsoring distilleries. Everyone mixed and mingled with Master Distillers and bourbon celebrities. We had spirits producers from all over joining us this year and brought with them samples of some of their best spirits, along with fun treats like bourbon ice cream and Ale 8 bourbon slushes.
Attendees also had the opportunity to bid on a wide variety of silent auction items, including one-of-a-kind bourbon experiences and rare bottles of whiskey. The event included upscale southern cuisine, delectable desserts and beer and Huber’s Winery wine for non-bourbon lovers.
