All Bourbon Barrel Foods’ items are handcrafted in small batches in Butchertown – Louisville, Kentucky. Using reclaimed barrels straight from Kentucky’s finest bourbon distilleries as both a smoking and aging agent. The process imparts an added dimension of flavor that cannot be replicated using any other method.

Bourbon Barrel Foods began as a soy sauce microbrewery. Matt Jamie, founder, and owner taught himself the art of soy sauce brewing by researching online, followed by many hours of trial and error. The final result is our Bluegrass Soy Sauce, inspired by Kentucky’s nickname, “The Bluegrass State.”Bluegrass Soy Sauce uses local ingredients, including the bourbon barrels. By law, bourbon barrels can only be used once to age bourbon; they are then sold for a variety of uses. By using the barrels as an aging vessel, the soy sauce becomes infused with the essence of Kentucky’s finest bourbon and the rich, oaky flavors from the charred barrels.

Non-GMO soybeans, soft red winter wheat, and limestone filtered water are combined with solar-evaporated sea salt to create the soy mash. Each barrel of Bluegrass Soy Sauce ages for a year inside the barrels until it is pressed and the final product is bottled. Once bottled, each label is hand-numbered by batch and bottle—our nod to the small batch bourbon makers.
