Since Bourbon doens't know about the 'de-aging' due to ATPX? Jodie found out proof through fate, I'd say. But bourbon may have stumbled upon or reseached some different evidence. Also given if she de-aged due to ATPX which only boss knows and no other member knows.
If others found out it would be a problem for her and might reveal Conan and Haibara shrinking. Also, Bourbon is revealed to know about Conan being the brains behind sleeping Kogoro but hasnt linked Shinichi with Conan yet.
Well. About the secret, there are 3 possible things for what is the secret that Bourbon knows.
1. It is like what you said.
2. Maybe Bourbon knows the real connection between Vermouth and ano kata. A lot of theories suggested that ano kata is Vermouth's lover or father or grandfather.
3. Maybe he knows the real reason why Vermouth joined BO or he knows what will Vermouth do now which will be bad if the BO knows about it, maybe he knows she will betray BO.
That's all II can think of for now, but my choice is number 3 because it supports my theory.
As for number 1: well, it's possible too, if we consider Bourbon's and Elena's relationship. If he was close to Elena maybe he knows a bit about the experiments or the guinea pigs for the experiments.
But I think she didn't hide it to protect Conan and Haibara in the first place. Because if the reason that Vermouth contacted Saguru 2-3 years ago has a connection with the reason for keeping the shrunken effect a secret, then she was already working on it for at least 2 years ago before Conan and Haibara shrunk. Maybe it was for the sake of someone else or for her own sake.
And many people said that Vermouth is protecting Conan because she owes him (NY case): yes, I agree with that but is that all? I think there is another reason and these 2 points explain why she'd have another reason.
First: we don't know why she ended up in the BO in the first place.
Second: she killed a lot of people, but we still don't think her as a cold blooded killer like Gin, Vodka, Chianti, Korn. Why? Because it seems that she does it for a purpose and she is forced to do the BO's dirty jobs.
I think she's doing it for someone else's sake and she must live for them: that's why she owes Conan for saving her life. Maybe for the sake of them she helps Conan to destroy BO but, because of the person she's protecting, she can't help Conan too much.
