Pairings & Serving Ideas for

ZELS_Bourbon-LOGO_FullColor.png

Our Bourbon ZELS are made with a splash of real Kentucky bourbon and sweetened just a bit to give you a taste of our home state.

We're partial to a tumbler of our favorite spirt to accompany these ZELS, but they also taste great with cold lemonade or white wine.

For a truly delicious snacking experience, dip Bourbon Zels into a jar of Harvest Ginger Peach spread. The fruit and spices blend perfectly with the crunchy pretzels.
