Bourbon Bliss- The Best Bourbon Dessert Recipes


Why will you love Bourbon-infused desserts?

You don’t have to be a Kentucky Bourbon lover to enjoy the deep flavor and sweet finish Bourbon adds to a dessert.  It’s in the dessert dishes, that Bourbon really shines. Whether it’s rich Bourbon balls, a decadent Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie, or Smokey Bread Pudding with a Bourbon glaze, Bourbon Desserts pack the flavor.  Make your next dessert special.


The more you weigh, the harder you are to kidnap. Stay safe. Eat dessert.


Is Kentucky Bourbon Special?

Yes it is. Kentucky has 68 distilleries as of 2018, up 250% in the last decade.  More than 7.5 million barrels of Bourbon Whiskey currently sit in Kentucky Rickhouses.  There are more barrels of bourbon  in Kentucky than people!  It’s not an accident that Kentucky Bourbon has become an International sensation.

There is a very specific set of standards to which all bourbon makers must adhere. The Federal Standards of Identity for Distilled Spirits state that bourbon made for U.S. consumption must be:

  • Produced in the United States
  • Made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
  • Aged in new, charred oak barrels
  • Distilled to no more than 160 (U.S.) proof (80% alcohol by volume)
  • Entered into the container for aging at no more than 125 proof (62.5% alcohol by volume)
  • Bottled at 80 proof or more (40% alcohol by volume)
