Kentucky Bourbon

Dorton's Best Kentucky bourbon

Kentucky bourbon was an Earth alcoholic beverage, a whiskey originating from Kentucky in the United States of America. Malcolm Reed and Charles Tucker III drank a bottle of Dorton's Best while awaiting their early death. (ENT: "Shuttlepod One") Bourbon was also a traditional ingredient in mint juleps. (TOS: "This Side of Paradise")

Kentucky bourbon was also the secret ingredient for Dr. McCoy's Southern baked beans in an earlier script for Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. This dialogue was instead replaced with Tennessee whiskey for the theater release.
Dorton's Best, the brand in "Shuttlepod One" is fictional, a reference to Louise Dorton, the show's art director. The distinctive bottle was actually from Frïs Vodka.
