Bourbon-Glazed Bacon & Turkey Sandwich
The South American barrel-aged darling by the name of bourbon from Kentucky, is a favourite among Southerners. Bourbon whiskey is popular all over the world, so much so that it makes up for two-thirds of the exports of distilled spirits.
From Hitchcock’s protagonist in North by Northwest and Jack Nicholson’s Jack Torrence in The Shining to James Bond, bourbon is a fashionable American favourite. Hollywood clearly has a lot to do with it.
