It all started with a realization: there weren’t any micro-brewed soy sauces being made in the United States. Add bourbon to the equation, and Bourbon Barrel Foods was born.
What began as spit-balling creative business ideas among friends (over oysters, no less), has since developed into a thriving local business. Bourbon Barrel Foods, which launched in 2006 with its signature Bluegrass Soy Sauce, is the brainchild of Matt Jamie. Matt, a returned Louisvillian, recognized the power of the bourbon trend early on and got to work creating the first and only Bourbon-barrel aged soy sauce.
You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn’t love Tyler. Outgoing and fun, Tyler is friends with everyone. It’s hard not to get drawn into a conversation with him!
Georgia, now the manager at Vint Coffee, loves working with him because, “It’s always a blast! Not only is he great at his job, but he’s constantly cracking up his coworkers. He’s an amazing latte artist, but he’s also accomplished at stage lighting. He even worked with Actors Theater over the summer!”

If you’ve ever enjoyed one of the many treats in our bakery case, odds are they were handmade by the one of the bakers at Najla’s Inc.
Headed up by long-time baker and local entrepreneur Najla Aswad, Najla’s Inc. employs an almost-all female team (Audras makes the deliveries) of bakers, chefs, and culinary school graduates to make everything from scones, cakes, and brownies to protein bowls, energy bars and breakfast wraps from fresh, raw ingredients.
“It’s never scared me to start from raw ingredient to finished product. You can get so much more integrity in flavor and quality when you do it yourself,” Najla explains.
Generous and inclusive, Tiffany is always finding ways to brighten up the day of her co-workers and customers. (Even as she was being interviewed for this Meet Your Barista feature, she started nominating a fellow barista for the next one!)
Stephanie, who now manages HB-Hikes Point, says of Tiffany, “Tiffany does all the cool things. She is the manager of the Flame Run glass blowing studio AND she makes art of her own. Carved and painted things with skeletons, sort of Day of the Dead. Oh and she is like obsessed with squirrels, or as she says in Spanish “ardilla”. I just love working with this girl!”
Which location do you work at?
