Kentucky Woods Bourbon Barrel Cakes




Bourbon has proudly been produced in Kentucky using charred oak barrels since the 18th century, and two hundred years of tradition are in every Kentucky Woods Bourbon Barrel Cake.

A Kentucky Woods Bourbon Barrel Cake starts off with a brown sugar cake that is blended with a chocolate cake that has been made with 3 kinds of aged Kentucky bourbon. It is topped with walnuts and then baked, cooled, and soaked in a secret process to bring out the essence of the cake and make it into a unique, moist, and decadently rich dessert. It is finally topped with a chocolate and maple caramel drizzle before it is packed into a handmade wood barrel cake box.

It is one of our top sellers for corporate gifts, either by itself or as a base for other great Kentucky items. Check out the gift baskets section of this site. Perfect for an individual, family, or office.

Anyone of any age can eat a slice of Kentucky Woods Barrel Cake, too: even though each cake is made with bourbon, it cooks out during the baking leaving less than .5% alcohol as a result. The cake retains its rich bourbon taste through a unique recipe that preserves the essence of the bourbon flavor without any alcohol.

The Kentucky Woods Bourbon Barrel Baby Cake is just that – a smaller-sized version of its larger sibling the Kentucky Woods Bourbon Barrel Cake.  It is presented in a 5x5x3 kraft style box, rather than a wooden box. 

Just as tasty as its larger brethren, it is made with the exact same recipe and scaled down to a (still sizable) portion that’s perfect for one or two people.

Note: Adam Matthews is the only company that makes the Kentucky Woods Bourbon Barrel cake. They follow a family recipe and tradition known only to a few select people and master bakers.
