Pappy & Company Handmade Bourbon Balls (Pack of 12)

  • Bourbon balls are a Kentucky classic for good reason. After all, what's not to like about bourbon, chocolate, and pecans? If you ask us, it's the perfect combo. Dreamed up in the Louisville kitchen of Ruth Hanley Booe back in 1938, bourbon balls have become a Christmas tradition across the South. But we don't believe in relegating these sweet Kentucky treats to a single holiday, especially our sister Louise who always has a box (or two) on hand. Instead, we asked our talented friend Maggie Jones of Sugar Mama's Bake Shop in Louisville, to help us perfect our recipe (made with our family's Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year). Naturally, she nailed it on with the first batch! Today, the handmade sweets ship nationwide-seasonally. Last year, Jones produced more than 100K bourbon balls for hand. For peak flavor, enjoy at room temp.

    Please note:this item is part of our refrigerated goods collection and will require an ice pack and thermal insulation when shipping between April - September. To ensure freshness and quality, while also keeping product prices down, we will add a $5 surcharge to cover the extra handling required for these items seasonally. Only one charge per order. All refrigerated goods will ship Monday - Wednesday only, and that will be reflected on the estimated delivery times at checkout.

Hard and no bourbon flavor

Maybe we got a stale box, but these were a big disappointment. The inside of the balls is hard, like a malted milk ball and didn’t taste like much besides sugar. No taste of bourbon. Was embarrassed we brought out the candy for guests and sorry to see $30 down the drain.

Product Ideas: I’d thought of giving it as an Easter gift, but didn’t get to it on time.
I’ve had better

The product was disappointing; I’ve had better. I’m glad I didn’t give it as a gift because of the ordinariness of the candy.

Bourbon balls

The order came and soon treated myself to one. It was delicious and very fresh tasting. A bourbon taste with a nice chocolate blend with neither over bearing one another. Will definitely be ordering again.
