First Bourbon-certified Chocolatier
At Art Eatables® we wanted to do something different.
In 2011, we started a candy company and kept getting asked if we made bourbon balls. But we didn’t. More than that, we didn’t want to. Bourbon balls are an established tradition in the commonwealth; it seems everyone’s grandmother makes them. We didn’t want to trample on that tradition.
So we worked and worked and developed something new — and that’s how we became the Creator of the Small-batch Bourbon Truffle™. Our founder, Kelly Ramsey, is the world’s first bourbon-certified chocolatier and is an Executive Bourbon Steward of the Stave and Thief Society.
The Small-batch Bourbon Truffle™ is different from most other bourbon candies because we focus equally on the confection and on the bourbon. What’s more, we pick chocolates that accent the character of the bourbons we use. Sometimes they even pull out hidden notes that you might not have noticed before. By paying attention to both the chocolate and the bourbon, we deliver a taste experience like no other.
There was one other benefit — even people who don’t like bourbon found themselves liking these truffles. You get the satisfying tastes of rich Belgian-style chocolates, paired with the elegant flavors of many of Kentucky’s most-loved bourbons. (The best part to us — people have told us that they started buying bourbons to learn about them after buying our truffles. What a great way to encourage people to learn about our state’s most famous spirit!)
In addition, our truffles are nut-free and created in a nut-free environment
