A history of the facts and folklore surrounding this legendary American whiskey.

Kentucky Bourbon: The Early Years of Whiskeymaking tells the story of bourbon’s evolution, debunking many popular myths along the way. First published more than twenty-five years ago, it looks at a variety of fascinating historical subjects, from the role of alcohol in colonial America and in the lives of frontiersmen to the importance of the Kentucky product in the Revolutionary War. Like a fine liquor, the book has aged well in its elegance and complexity.

“The first [book] of its kind to carefully trace the early years of bourbon in Kentucky and to draw from extensive research of 17th and 18th century newspapers, court records, diaries and journals.” —Kentucky Alumni
