Named for the official drink of the Kentucky Derby, Mint Julep Sugar has all the rich caramel flavors of raw sugar as well as the refreshing flavors of mint. Use it as finishing sugar for desserts, a topping on fresh fruit, or muddled into your favorite cocktail or tea. Bourbon Barrel Foods is a maker of gourmet food products that reflect the rich heritage of Kentucky's Bourbon Country, "The Napa Valley of the Bluegrass." Their philosophy is to make quality gourmet sauces and seasonings by adhering to a three-word philosophy: slow, small, simple. From the farmer in southern Kentucky that grows the soybeans for naturally fermented, small-batch soy sauce, to the grower in Eastern Kentucky that harvests the sorghum used as a sweetener, Bourbon Barrel Foods have a hands-on approach that requires them to search for the best their state has to offer and develop relationships with the farmers that get great satisfaction seeing their crops grow from the seed to the shelf.
