The VIPP Report: Kentucky based DB Bourbon Candy gets “Presidential” status as they head to Washington to serve V.I.P. guests at the Congressional Black Caucus


(Louisville, KY) It’s the moment when you realize that the highest government official in the United States of America will be attending the V.I.P. reception you are sponsoring and your product and state pride begins to kick in.  DB Bourbon Candy, LLC headquartered in Frankfort, Kentucky along with Four Roses Bourbon will travel to the District of Columbia to be sponsors of the V.I.P. Reception at the 45th Annual Legislative Conference Phoenix Awards Dinner where President Barack Obama will serve as the keynote speaker.

The dinner will be held on Saturday, September 19th at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. at 6:00 p.m.

DB Bourbon Candy was asked to provide 600 boxes of their delicious Four Roses Bourbon filled candy for guests to enjoy.  Dignitaries from Congress, the Senate and the President and First Lady Michelle Obama will all be in attendance.

Robyn Stuart, DB Bourbon Candy CEO says “To be in a room full of history makers proud of their accomplishments only gives me a sense of pride that I made my dream into reality. From a family tradition created to celebrate a holiday to introducing people all over the world to a Kentucky favorite.  This is the ultimate invite to be asked to be a part of such a prestigious event where our country’s head of state will be in attendance.  This is a true example that I can achieve anything”.

Prior to Saturday’s event on Wednesday, September 14th, DB Bourbon Candy will provide 200 boxes for the 20th Annual Celebration of Leadership in Fine Arts honoring entertainment icons Cicely Tyson, Richard Roundtree and Dionne Warwick.  It takes place at Sidney Harman Hall, 610 F.

In 2002, Stuart started her business after the passing of her mother.   During the holidays, her mother would create the delicious treat as a family tradition. Robyn wanted to honor her mother in some way so she decided to start the business and make the original candy recipe apart of her business. With the support of Four Roses and Bourbon Country as well as the many events and activities she participates in everyone loves to see the wonderful creation that she produces.  From initially starting with candy the business has grown into developing other products such as chocolate covered fruit, cheesecakes to chocolate covered popcorn.
