Taste of Kentucky
Taking a bit of a break from the local equine attractions unique to Kentucky, this next experience offers those who visit a taste of the Bluegrass state.
Old Kentucky Chocolates shares a similar story to our own at Lexington Brewing Company. Our founder, Dr. Pearse Lyons, always stressed the importance in family and felt strongly about his legacy being continued through his children. The Hurt family has lived in Kentucky for more than 200 years- and certainly knows the value behind keeping it in the family. Founded in 1964 by Don and Pam Hurt, OKC has been owned and operated by Julia Kirkpatrick and Bill Hurt (Don and Pam's niece and nephew) since late 2016. The business has remained in the family since its inception and with great-niece and nephew Will and Katie Hurt joining in recent years behind the scenes, it will continue to be a local family business for years to come.
Katie Hurt welcomed me into their Lansdowne Shoppes location to get a closer look at their signature chocolates.
