Sweet sorghum is “Kentucky’s syrup” and is loaded with antioxidants. It’s earthy and sweet with hints of exotic spice. Sometimes called “sorghum molasses,” sorghum is not actually a molasses, which comes from sugar cane. Both sorghum and molasses come from the cooking and reduction of cane juice, although sorghum is a grass native to the American South and Africa. This sorghum is milled in Kentucky from a single crop and not blended with sorghum from other growers. Use sweet sorghum in place of other syrups, honey, molasses or brown sugar.

Bourbon Barrel Aged Sorghum is milled in Southern Kentucky from a family-owned farm, Townsend Farm, from a single crop and not blended with sorghum from other growers. Use sweet sorghum in place of syrups like maple, honey, molasses, or brown sugar, and it is an excellent sugar replacement.
