Bourbon: The Story of Kentucky Whiskey Boxed Set

Published By

In my own journey to gobble all possible info about my favorite spirit, Clay Risen has been an invaluable guide. My copy of his American Whiskey, Bourbon & Rye is all kinds of used and abused. Now this New York Times editor and historian has distilled (yes) all of his extensive bourbon knowledge into a two-volume behemoth overflowing with bright, rich images and copious research and named it, fittingly, Bourbon: The Story of Kentucky Whiskey Boxed Set

Telling the story of Kentucky whiskey, Risen takes you through the birth, boom, near-bust, and re-boom of America‚Äôs native spirit. He profiles distilleries, interviews whiskey makers and shakers, and tells you how to enjoy and collect bourbon. The boxed set also has a pull-out drawer full of frame-worthy reproductions of bottle labels, archival photos, and other bourbon memorabilia. Best enjoyed with a healthy pour of something aged in charred oak.
