Insert wooden sticks 3/4 of the way into the stem end of each apple. Place apples on a baking tray covered with lightly greased aluminium foil.
Combine sugar, golden syrup and water in a large saucepan and bring to the boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until thermometer registers 143 C. Remove from the heat and stir in the bourbon if desired.
Keep the saucepan over low heat to keep the toffee liquid for dipping the apples. Working quickly, carefully dip apples in the toffee. Place apples on the greased aluminium foil until coating has cooled and hardened.
