Bourbon Empire

Bourbon Empire

Posted in BOOKS, MEDIA By

American whiskey boasts a history rich in innovation and heritage that dates back to the Whiskey Rebellion of 1794. But there also exists a side of the story rarely documented and often forgotten — the history of capitalism, political controversy, and links to American organized crime.

Reid Mitenbuler tells the real story of American whiskey in his new book, “Bourbon Empire: The Past and Future of America’s Whiskey”, which details the journey of big name bourbons such as Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, and Evan Williams — from the days of bootlegging during the prohibition era and questionable business practices to the giant conglomerates they are today. – $19
