Bourbon Vanilla is a generic term for Vanilla planifolia, and is the most commonly used variety in vanilla extract. Vanilla planifolia stock originated in Mexico, vanilla’s birthplace, but cuttings were taken to other tropical countries in the 1700s. In the 1800s, the French developed large plantations on Reunion, known at the time as the Ile de Bourbon, hence the name Bourbon. Although Bourbon vanilla extract contains alcohol, it is not made from Bourbon whiskey.
Bourbon and Mexican vanillas have the familiar vanilla flavor that we associate with vanilla ice cream and other vanilla flavored desserts and beverages.
Double fold vanillas are especially useful when using convection ovens or production baking and for any products such as candy or beverages where you want to use less liquid but get a more intense flavor.
