Publisher Comments:

Whiskey is one of the world's great spirits--distilled, sipped, and dissected for centuries, and still thoroughly enjoyed today. Follow veteran journalist and spirits authority William Dowd down the worldwide whiskey trail with this outstanding collection of articles on the intricacies of whiskey making, whiskey history and its foremost producers (George Smith, Jack Daniel, John Jameson, John Power; the Beams--they're all here), and whiskey collectors and collecting. There's even insight into home vatting. Begin your tour with Dowd's personal overview of the spirits world and drink in his friendly yet informative tone throughout the book. Whether a connoisseur or novice, you are sure to develop a taste for this storied spirit.

Synopsis:

Craft distilling has exploded in the United States—and James Rodewald, former Drinks Editor for Gourmet magazine, takes an in-depth look at the intrepid characters at the forefront of the liquid revolution. He speaks to the men and women at the heart of this remarkable industry about the challenges they face, the rewards of their hard work, and the delicious spirits they make.
