Handmade by a genuine southern belle!
Bourbon is All-American. Whiskey may be made everywhere from Brooklyn to Scotland but in 1964, Congress declared bourbon "America's Native Spirit." That means to be called bourbon, it must be made in the U.S. But really, everyone knows that means Kentucky - 95 percent of the world's bourbon is made in Kentucky.
Only our original Kentucky bourbon balls have that special "melt in your mouth" taste that is often copied, but never duplicated!
Fun fact: There are now 1.5 barrels for every person living in Kentucky!
All bourbon is whiskey is but not all whiskey is bourbon. Corn is a sweet grain. The more corn, the sweeter the whiskey. And to be called bourbon, it must be at least 51 percent corn. Most distillers use 65 to 75 percent corn.
Nothing can be added to bourbon in the distilling process except water. So, that means that all the flavor comes from the charred oak barrels.
Bourbon, by law, must be aged in a brand-new, charred white oak barrel to be called straight bourbon whiskey—that means, a barrel can only be used once for bourbon.
Our exquisite Bourbon Bon Bons are made with premium chocolate and the finest bourbons available topped with a fresh southern pecan - it is all about that luscious taste.
