Artisan Craft Candles

Barley & Hops Craft Candles

Barley & Hops Craft Candles is a Kansas City-based craft candle company owned and operated by wife & husband team Carrie & Brandon Atkins. 

We hand-pour a libation of soy-blend candles that pay homage to craft breweries, craft distilleries, cideries, and wineries from across the nation.

Our craft candles don’t replicate the aroma of the spirits we sip in the traditional sense. Rather, they capture the essence & lovely notes of the unique aromas without compromising the lovely, inviting aroma of a great candle.

Our collection of artisan candles are crafted to the highest possible standard. They are eco-friendly, dye-free, hemp-wicked, highly fragrant, and hand-poured.

Hot Buttered Hazelnut Whiskey Candle

Our Hot Buttered Hazelnut Whiskey candle took inspiration from a whiskey bourbon that was distilled in a cave. Yeah, really…a cave. Big Boom Straight Bourbon Whiskey by S.D. Strong Distilling. After nearly three years in American white oak barrels, Big Boom bursts with spice, fresh oak, and soft corn notes, all underscored by a rich layer of caramel.
