Jan. 10, 2024 — To celebrate the grand opening of our first store in the Bluegrass State, Publix is offering special Kentucky-inspired products available only at the Louisville location.

Deli department

Publix BourbonRidge Pulled Pork Sub
Also known as the Kentucky Sub, this sub features Boar’s Head BourbonRidge Ham, Publix Smoked Pulled Pork, Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar Yellow Cheese and Boar’s Head Chipotle Gourmaise. To finish the masterpiece, a generous serving of Publix Sweet Coleslaw and Boar’s Head Pickles top the sub off. 

Seafood department

Bourbon-flavored Smoked Salmon
Customers can enjoy this special offering that is cured with a salt, sugar, maple and bourbon spice blend, then slowly smoked and cooked over oak wood.

Honey Bourbon Salmon Burger 
This delightful spin on a classic is handmade daily using fresh, farm-raised salmon, mixed with a smoky bourbon seasoning, then delicately blended with red peppers, green onion, honey and a hint of bacon.

Local product offerings 

The meat department offers Kentucky grass-fed ground beef from cattle born, raised and harvested in Kentucky.

For a cheesy addition to any meal or snack, the deli department sells the traditional and hot flavors of Kentucky Beer Cheese, produced by the local, family-owned Kentucky Beer Cheese Company.
