Copper & Kings partnered with Art Eatables Friday night to show the movie Chocolat in their decorative second floor event space. About 50 people gathered to enjoy the movie from the orange couches and white folding chairs as they indulged in the masterful pairings of Copper & Kings brandy, absinthe, Destillaré Orange Curaçao or gin with fudge and chocolates custom made by Kelly Ramsey at Art Eatables for this event.
My favorite pairing was the Floodwall Apple Brandy with Ramsey’s Chocolate French Toast Caramel. Other pairings included Old Tom Gin with Lemon Chiffon Drop or the White Chocolate Gin Wombley; Destillaré Orange Curaçao with Citrus Spice Chocolate Ganache; Absinthe with the Ginger Spiced Fudge; and the original Copper & Kings Brandy Chimere with the original Copper & Kings chocolate – the only confectionary delight served Friday that is available to purchase from Art Eatables. Based on feedback, Ramsey said she may be making some of the other treats available for purchase. I really hope the Chocolate French Toast Caramel is in that lineup. Copper and Kings hosts events regularly at their distillery. You can see the lineup on their website.

Louisville has been growing exponentially and hitting “top destination” and “top foodie” lists a lot in recent years. Here are some cool lists some of our food community made this month:
Louisville is #9 in the top ten beer destinations at Vinepair.com . “Ten years ago, Louisville, Kentucky had no beer tourism. Today, there are 40 craft breweries in the state, with 15 craft breweries in the city of Louisville alone. Kentucky Guild of Brewers president Derek Selznick says Kentucky brewers increased production by 20 percent in 2017, and the city anticipates 12 new breweries this year.”
Art Eatables was named the Best Chocolate Shop in Kentucky by 24/7 Wall St.
Brown Hotel’s English Grill was named the most romantic restaurant in the state by Food & Wine. (This restaurant was also named most popular in the state by People Magazine in September 2017.)
