Special Networking Event

Bourbon & Bats | June 12, 6:00 PM

Are you ready to experience the ultimate Louisville Bourbon social event? Join us at the Louisville Slugger Museum for an exclusive evening of bourbon blending, batting cages, and connection sponsored by ISCO.

Step up to the custom bourbon experience station and let your creativity run wild as you blend, create, and bottle your own unique bourbon. With guidance from expert bourbon makers, you’ll learn about the science behind the perfect blend and create a recipe that’s uniquely yours.

But that’s not all! Take a swing at the batting cages and see if you can hit a home run with your colleagues. As you enjoy the museum’s immersive exhibits, you’ll also have the opportunity to connect with peers and discuss the latest industry trends and innovations.
