How bourbon came to be and why it’s experiencing such a revival today Unraveling the many myths and misconceptions surrounding America’s most iconic spirit Bourbon Empire traces a history that spans frontier rebellion Gilded Age corruption and the magic of Madison Avenue Whiskey has profoundly influence. I had a hard time choosing between 3 and 4 stars for this book The author has a wealth of interesting information to share but most importantly he is a good storyteller and his love of the topic is infectious Parts of the book are fascinating I especially liked seeing how the opinions on bourbon changed throughout American history spanning the civil war the western frontier prohibition of course the industrial captains of industry age and the modern craft fooddrink movement The bourbon industry seems to have than its fair share of colorful characters Also interesting to get a view behind the curtain at how major distilleries construct a storyhistoryimage to fit the notions that consumers expect out of a bourbonThe reason I struggled to give it that 4th star is largely a matter of editing The book jumped about uite a bit sometimes dry history sometimes fascinating storytelling sometimes mini biographies sometimes speculation on eras when historical records are scarce sometimes near tirades against particular distilleries It also repeated itself from time to time I was already rolling my eyes the 3rd of 4th time I was reminded of the HamiltonJefferson views of industry included short bursts of hyperbole and opinion and even had the odd misspelling or two A firm hand at editing would have made this book really crackle but I'm trying not to hold that against it You can even sense the author trying to reign himself in at times noting that taste is subjective etc with mixed resultsIn the end it is kind of like sitting down over a bourbon to have a chat with someone who really loves and is knowledgeable about a subject Even if the conversation goes off the rails on occasion it is bound to be interesting Ultimately I enjoyed reading it and felt like I came away learning new things so 4 stars it is

D America’s political economic and cultural destiny just as those same factors have inspired the evolution and uniue flavor of the whiskey itself Taking readers behind the curtain of an enchanting and sometimes exasperating industry the work of writer Reid Mitenbuler crackles with attitude and commentary. I'm not a fan of bourbon but my last husband surely enjoyed Evan Williams and I wish he were still here so he could read this informative entertaining book on the history of his favorite drink You may think you know this history of that bourbon in your hand but you'll be surprised how many backstories are a product of pure marketing Whatever the story iswasor will be I still think your taste buds will lead you to the perfect brand for you
