Quick Reference

A bourbon biscuit is an oblong chocolate-flavoured sweet biscuit with a chocolate-cream filling, named presumably after the ancient seigniory of Bourbon, from which came the dynasty that ruled France from 1272 to 1792. It does not seem to have come on the scene until the 1930s: ‘Mrs Poyser sent in some smoked salmon and a bag of Bourbon biscuits’ (Louis Golding, Magnolia Street, 1932).
