Fat Toad Farm Salted Bourbon Goat’s Milk Caramel Sauceuser rating
Made in small batches with milk from its own herd of pastured French Alpine and Saanen dairy goats, this creamy caramel is hand-stirred with the extra benefit of bourbon and sea salt. Inspired by their shared obsession with Kentucky bourbon and anything soaked in booze, sisters Hannah Reid and Calley Hastings infused their sweet, smoky caramel—already in four other flavors—with a touch of salt and Kentucky Straight Bourbon. The fresh milk is combined with organic cane sugar and cooked slowly in large copper kettles until it turns into a thick caramel sauce with a deep amber color. The alcohol from the bourbon burns off almost immediately after being added and leaves behind a warm, smoky finish.
