LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville mom and pop shop is making it in Hollywood.

Dozens of movie stars will get a taste of Kentucky on March 2 when 500 boxes of bourbon truffles from Art Eatables on Fourth Street end up in "swag bags" at the Oscars. 

"The truffles that we are going to be sending to the Academy Awards this year, we're going to feature our Maker's Mark Truffle, our Blanton Truffle, our Michter's Small Batch ,and then our M.B. Rowland," said Art Eatables owner Kelly Ramsey. 

The sweet treats are made by hand.

Art Eatables opened less than two years ago. The Oscar nod came in June thanks to a well-connected shopper.

"I think he was sort of heaven sent," said Ramsey. "I actually think it's a great idea to put Louisville on the map, that we're doing great things with chocolates and bourbons."

The store's brush with fame has provided a boost in business, but representing the Bluegrass State is what makes Ramsey feel like she's already a winner.

"I just want people to see that there are some great things that are coming out of Kentucky," Ramsey said.

Art Eatables is located at 631 South Fourth Street in Louisville. Click here for a link to the Art Eatables website.
