Copper & Kings, the brandy distillery at 1111 E. Washington St., has introduced a line of food items now being sold at the distillery under the brand name Copper & Kings’ Butchertown Provisions. This new product line includes a barbecue rub, sorghum, honey and smoked peppercorns. All are flavored by brandy in some way.
Several of the items are smoked with brandy barrel staves, giving an aroma that is sweeter and fruitier than the flavor profile of bourbon barrel-smoked foods. The items have been available since December. If they prove successful, there is likely to be an effort to expand the offerings in the future.
