A Shared Passion

As in the past, we bring together bourbon lovers from novice to connoisseur in a new, exciting and engaging week of events featuring the premium whiskey community, local area restaurants/hospitality and The Coalition For The Homeless.  With over $150,000 raised to date from the past Bourbon Mixers, proceeds will again benefit the Coalition for the Homeless. The mission of the Coalition For The Homeless is to prevent and end homelessness in Louisville through education, advocacy, and the coordination of its 30 member agencies and dozens of other community partners.

Guests will have the opportunity to virtually engage with exciting presentations as well as bid on a wide variety of auction items, including one-of-a-kind bourbon experiences and rare bottles of whisky! 


All proceeds benefit the Coalition for the Homeless, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to advocate for people who are homeless and for the prevention and elimination of homelessness.


Live Artist Demonstration & Auction

Follow along each night as famed artist, Richard Sullivan, creates an artistic masterpiece just for the 2020 Bourbon Mixer. This one-of-a-kind piece will be available through the Bourbon Mixer silent auction.

Sullivan, a former Atlanta Braves player and Louisville resident, has his work prominently displayed on this year's Woodford Reserve Kentucky Derby Special Release bottle.
