2023 NALA Sponsors

NALAis hosted in the beautiful city of Louisville, Kentucky.

For most people, Bourbon is a spirit that comes in a glass. And no one is more famous for it than Louisville. But here in Louisville, Bourbon is so much more than that. Here, Bourbon is also a spirit that lives in our minds and hearts and shapes our way of life, every day.

You see, Bourbon began here in these parts centuries ago, the product of some of the most spirited entrepreneurs to ever walk the earth. Their unique and free-thinking spirit was passed down from generation to generation and built the Bourbon industry as we now know it. It’s this same spirit that went on and created Louisville itself - a city that combines heritage with innovation, authenticity with originality, and quirkiness with friendliness in a way that’s completely unique to our region.

It’s this same spirit that provides Louisville with a brand of Southernness and hospitality unlike anyplace else. Yes, Bourbon is a spirit that comes in a glass, but it’s also a spirit that definesour culture and compassion, our arts and parks, and our creative energy, not to mention our highly acclaimed culinary scene.

Welcome to Bourbon City.
