I really don't know - the bourbon extract seemed to be what you are asking about. Also, Google is your friend.

If you're using it for cooking, just use bourbon. The alcohol will soon evaporate leaving your cakes, cookies, BBQ sauce alcohol free.

Actually how much burns off is dependent of the type and length of cooking:

Here is a chart that gives quite a bit of information:

I'm quite sure that 'Bourbon Extract" contains alcohol, just like vanilla extract does (70 proof at least according to FDA rules).

Is there a reason why you need non-alcohol bourbon flavoring?

If you want some non-alcohol bourbon flavor, pour a glass of bourbon and the alcohol and water will evaporate leaving behind lots of flavor and no alcohol.

but before it does that it will get intensely murky and gross looking. :skep:


most of the flavor that is bourbon, IS alcohol...

It may be murky but it still smells good. I really enjoy the smell of a glass with a little dried bourbon residue in the bottom. Nothing but great scents.

I am with you on that one. I usually leave the last few drops in my glencairn and then appreciate the smell in the morning.

That's not true... alcohol is basically flavorless.

I do this too and it got me in trouble. I was looking for a good way to clean out the glencairns and was using the bottle brush that my wife uses for the babies bottle and she yelled at me :).

I have bottle of Liquor Quik brand "Bourbon Tennessee Whiskey" Essence that I picked up at a beer convention for whatever reason. I just checked the bottle and it says nothing about having alcohol in it although I assume it still may. Anyway, I did a search for it and there are a couple of places selling this, here's one (http://www.thegrape.net/browse.cfm/4,11729.html). They actually list ingredients on this site and alcohol is not one of them. Hope this helps.

I apologize for the misunderstanding. I understand that the alcohol molecule is basically flavorless, but if you were to remove all of the alcohol from bourbon, how much would the taste change?

I generally make my own for homemade ice cream and the like by "cooking down" bourbon by using a flambaye (sp?) like technique.

Go to a home brew store or any store that sells home brewing supplies. Most of them sell "essenses," including bourbon essense, for the purpose of making faux whiskey and other spirits from vodka. I've never used them but I don't think they contain any alcohol themselves and they're not particularly expensive, so are worth a try. That's the only thing like that I know about.

How much they really taste like bourbon is a question, but it's like NA beer and wine. They don't taste right because even though alcohol is tasteless, it's part of the overall experience.

I totally agree, Chuck.

There is a reason that so many flavoring essences are delivered in an alcohol base ... somehow, alcohol carries and preserves the taste very well ... If you try to carry and preserve the taste of bourbon without the alcohol, it just doesn't work out very well.
