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.
