  Hi Diane,

I think that the sauce you mean was Glaser's Derby Barbecue Sauce made by Glaser Crandell Co.  There are some old Derby BBQ sauce bottles and other Derby collectibles for sale on the web, and magazine ads for it can be found. I did a thorough search for this about 1 1/2 years ago with no success. See: 1-11-2019

I searched again today, similarly with no success. I have never found any indication that bourbon was one of its ingredients, but without an actual ingredient list, who knows?
