When you visit Kentucky (or if you are a native), bourbon ball candies are one treat to remember. Bourbon chocolates, decadent whisky confections that made their appearance in the early 1900’s, are unique to Kentucky and are as much a part of Bluegrass tradition as the venerable Mint Julep.
These bourbon balls are handmade at Ruth Hunt Candy Company in Mt. Sterling, where Laura’s Hemp Chocolates are also made. Larry K., the owner of the company, uses Woodford Reserve® Straight Bourbon Whiskey, cooked down in copper kettles, to create these tasty confections you’ll never forget.
Note: the bourbon balls do not contain hemp or CBD.
A NOTE ON SHIPPING CHOCOLATES
Shipping chocolates during summer is a conundrum. It’s a challenge most companies would back away from, but we didn’t want to leave our customers out until fall.
When you reach checkout, you will find shipping rates are $3.99 per bag/box of chocolates.
These rates account for the costs of eco-friendly, temperature-proof packaging required to keep your chocolates from melting in transit, as well as the expedited shipping time to get your chocolates to your doorstep as quickly as possible.
