I am getting really excited about the products coming out of Kentucky these days. The past few years have seen an outpouring of food and beverage creativity from the Bluegrass, and the movement continues. So keeping it local has become easier and easier, and with the heat of summer setting in, it’s really exciting to find a beverages that are new, interesting and delicious. Enter Baqua Tisanes, a small line of beverages started and sold in Kentucky that have been getting lots of love on the Lexington scene lately.
It’s pretty pleasing to see more and more people getting on board with buying and eating more fresh/organic/local products. I suppose with the logistics and economics making the items more available, a greater number of people will have access to such things. Lexington has already welcomed national chains Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s to it’s fold, and a few weeks ago they were joined by Colorado-based chain Lucky’s, and I was curious to see how it compared.
