Bluegrass Soy Sauce


Bluegrass Soy Sauce is microbrewed in small batches using only whole Kentucky grown Non-GMO soybeans, soft red winter wheat, and the purest limestone filtered Kentucky spring water. We ferment and age the soybean mash in re-purposed bourbon barrels. It’s smoky and brothy with hints of oak and a mild sweetness reminiscent of fine Kentucky bourbon.

Established in 2006 as the U.S.’s only soy sauce microbrewery, Bourbon Barrel Foods has become a cornerstone in both the bourbon and gourmet foods industries. All of Bourbon Barrel Foods’ products incorporate innovative uses of bourbon barrels and are crafted with care in small batches.

Bluegrass Soy Sauce is handcrafted in Louisville, Kentucky using the local ingredients of the Bluegrass state. We combine solar-evaporated sea salt with Kentucky grown soft red winter wheat and non-GMO soybeans from Marion County. The climate of this part of the state is essential because the humidity makes for higher water content in the wheat and soy.

With the combination of non-GMO soybeans, wheat, and yeast (this is called a koji), we add limestone-filtered spring water brought in from Bardstown, Kentucky. Limestone-filtered spring water is the same water used to make Kentucky bourbon. The high mineral content of the limestone-filtered water adheres well to the yeast, ideal for fermenting the mash/koji.

By law, bourbon barrels can only be used once to age bourbon. 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. Each barrel of Bluegrass Soy Sauce ages for one year inside the barrels until it’s pressed and the final product is bottled.
