**Bourbon Ball Alert**

* All our balls contain nuts and some type of alcohol (liqueur)
* Please avoid if you are pregnant.  We would not want to harm your little one
*  You must be over 21 years of age to consume

At this time, we do not.  However, there is a lot of research being done on the development of spirited flavors, that will serve as a great substitute for the alcohol, for our teetotalers.

We add the bourbon or liqueur of choice, right at the end, so the spirit can mingle with the chocolate and pecans, and tantalize your taste buds.

Highly unlikely.  The balls are bite-sized, maybe two bite-sized, so you would have to eat a lot of them. You are more likely to experience a sugar high, than a buzz, so we feel it is a safe indulgence.  Remember, you must be over 21 years of age to eat these decadent treats, and if you are concerned about driving after eating our bourbon balls, we ask that you eat in moderation and drive responsibly or abstain, until you are home safely.

They can be left out, at a temperature of 73 degrees or less for several hours.   If they last that long, congratulations, for showing unbelievable self-restraint. However, they can also be placed in the refrigerator, in a sealed tight container, to avoid coming in contact with other odors, for up to 4 weeks or for 2 months in the freezer.  When you are ready to eat or serve them, allow them to return to room temperature and enjoy!  The spirits will mellow within 3 days and the bourbon/spirit will be more developed.

We respect everyone’s dietary needs, however at this time, we do not offer a gluten-free option.

No, and the reason is because, nuts are one of the main ingredients in our bourbon balls.  Currently, we use pecans, however, future recipes will call for a variety of nuts, depending on the liqueur we are using.

Great Question!  With so many people, there are so many favorites!  Being a local business, we have chosen to support our local distilleries, on both sides of the state line, because they are producing excellent tasting spirits.  We have done our research, sent out questionnaires, and as you can guess, we received a lot of requests.  Our focus is on quality versus quantity, and to make handcrafted, small batches for every spirit on the market, is not feasible or cost prohibitive.  We always welcome your suggestions and do consider special orders, and offer ‘Special Limited-Time Offers.’

Yes, we do take special orders, but there will be an up-charge of 25.00 per order, and depending upon the size of your order, we may require extra processing time.   Note: Special order items are only available with a minimum order of 24 pack (This will include 2 – 12 pack packages).

Yes.  There are so many occasions, like weddings, anniversaries, retirement parties, promotions, fundraisers, corporate parties/gifting, spirit tastings and pairings, and hotel welcome guest gifts.  The list could go on and on, and you have likely thought of some fun ways to use our bourbon balls that we haven’t even thought of, so please give us a call or send an email.  We would love hearing your thoughts and you can be assured we will pull up our bootstraps and get the balls a rollin’.  Please note, we require at least 2 weeks’ lead time before your scheduled event.

All special order requests are handled by our Customer Service Representative at 816) 912-6272 .  You may also email us at bootlegbballs@gmail.com and in the subject line, please state “Special Order Request.”
