Bourbon Barrel Foods Soy Sauce
While many of his peers were content to spend just a few gratuitous seconds removing the lid of a soy sauce bottle or opening a to-go packet, Matt Jamie looked closer. A LOT closer. With fresh eyes, wondering “What If?...” Reaching back to what he had learned during years spent in Louisville, Kentucky, Matt began to notice the parallels between soy sauce brewing and small batch bourbon distilling that results in the best Kentucky bourbon.
And just like that, an idea was born that eventually led to Bourbon Barrel Foods. First, non-GMO soybeans were acquired, soft red winter wheat was located and the very best limestone-filtered Kentucky spring water was purchased at the source. Oh, and a few bourbon barrels - which had just been emptied after holding years of Kentucky's best bourbons - were brought back to Matt's soy sauce brewery in the Butchertown area of Louisville, KY.
A blond-haired guy from Kentucky brewing soy sauce? Oh, yes! The amazing result is Bluegrass Soy Sauce, America's only micro-brewed variety of this popular condiment.
"More soy sauce is spilled in a day by the "big guys" than we make in a year," Matt shared.
We're cool with that.
