Vint wins Best Dessert at Taste of Frankfort Avenue 2017

In Blog, Louisville, News // on September 12th, 2017 // by // No comment

Espresso, bourbon-smoked sugar, and peppermint? Yes, please!

Those are some of the ingredients in the award-winning dessert combination from our Vint location – an Espresso Pecan scone and our iced Vint Julep (made with bourbon-smoked & mint sugars from local Bourbon Barrel Foods).

Vint has been competing in the Taste of Frankfort Avenue event since 2010, which just celebrated it’s 25 year anniversary this year. When the Vint barista team competed in the People’s Choice contest this year, their original iced Vint Julep latte was voted “Best Dessert”! With samples from more than 25 bars and restaurants — including Bourbons Bistro, Varanese, Volaré and the Italian Table – our signature drink had some stiff competition.

The Vint Julep is made using the Heine Brothers’ Coffee organic and fair trade espresso, steamed milk and Bourbon Barrel Food’s smoked sugars – a local business that uses bourbon barrels to smoke and infuse the sugars, as well as cooking spices, soy sauce, and other foods.

The scones are made by our local food partner Najla – a women-run business that uses natural & sustainable ingredients.

The Vint Julep can be ordered at our stores hot or iced, and the Espresso Pecan scones also pair well with any of our single origin coffees or specialty teas.

Meet the Maker: Copper & Kings

It would be hard not to notice the sleek, bright orange and black Copper & Kings sign that rises above their distillery when you’re driving down Story Avenue. Located in the middle of Butchertown’s growing community of local and small businesses, Copper & Kings is often also at the center of promoting that community and organizing neighborhood events.

Copper & Kings is primarily known for their brandy and absinthe, but equally as delicious is their non-alcoholic Butchertown Soda. You can find the Louisville-made craft sodas in the cold case at any of our stores.

While Butchertown Sodas have recognizable flavors, they are preservative-free, and use organic cane sugar and other high-quality ingredients that make them less syrupy, and more natural tasting than the average soft drink.
