Using Kentucky-grown non-GMO soybeans, soft red winter wheat, and limestone-filtered Kentucky spring water, this Bluegrass Soy Sauce is micro-brewed in small batches. Bourbon Barrel Foods ferments and mashes the soybeans in repurposed bourbon barrels, giving the sauce a smoky flavor with hints of oak along with a mild sweetness reminiscent of fine Kentucky bourbon. Learn the backstory of this soy sauce here.
Hand-thrown on the wheel and made from porcelain clay in Winchester, Kentucky, Dirty South Pottery’s stemless wine cup in “ocean jade” is a colorful alternative to glass stemware. Its rounded belly and slanted rim make for comfortable sipping. When the time comes to clean your cup, simply place it in the dishwasher.
Meet the first cold-smoked grits on the market. Cold-smoking preserves nutrients and allows the underlying corn flavors to balance with natural smoke. Fry up an egg with Holy Smoke’s Smoked Olive Oil and serve it alongside these unique grits for a smoky Southern breakfast.
