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.
We are an environmental company at the core and so we are determined to avoid styrofoam and unrecyclable plastic.
We use natural fiber insulated shippers, an environmental alternative to stryofoam. The biodegradable (compostable) insulation is made from cotton and other natural fibers. It is wrapped in recyclable plastic. Reuse the insulation as much as you’d like, and then remove it from the plastic and compost it.
Our packing peanuts are made from vegetable starch, and are compostable. The shipping box is recyclable and the ice packs are reusable. Thanks for embarking with us on our mission to ship chocolate in the summer.
