"History Never Tasted So Alive"! Come see the world famous Bourbon
Chocolates being born. This unique confectionery operation is known
worldwide as "The Invenotrs of Bourbon Candy!," and is located in
historic downtown Frankfort, KY - just a stone's throw from the
Kentucky state capitol building. Operating since 1919, Rebecca Ruth
Candy Inc. has been recommended by Food TV and The Food Net Work and
in the pages of Southern Living, Town & Country, KY AAA Tour Guide,
New York Times, and Chicago Tribune, and has been sold on QVC Home
Shopping Network. Tour highlights include "Edna's Table," a 12-foot
curved marble table, and an antique candy furnace with hand-stirred
copper kettles that are still used to this day. Tours also include an educational video and view of the candy production line. The Rebecca Ruth Candy utilizes an eclectic mix of antique & modern equipment to produce the most delightful offering of over 120 confections.

"We sampled everything the folks at Rebecca Ruth would let us sample
and we decided we'd have to take a bunch back to the studio for
additional research."
