Dead Distillers

Dead Distillers

Posted in BOOKS, MEDIA By

There’s something almost as satisfying as enjoying a carefully crafted spirit — learning about the people and history behind those spirits. As there was a time, long ago, when one could not go to the local general store and expect to find a bottle of whiskey, farmers and cobblers and whoever else went ahead and made their own. And when the enjoyment of alcohol became a criminal act, some devoted to liquor became criminals.

Here are fifty biographies of the rebels, scientists, businessmen, and presidents involved in the manufacture of distilled spirits. It’s written by the guys who started Kings County Distillery in New York and wrote the Guide to Urban Moonshining. Full of photos, maps, infographics, and fascinating stories, Dead Distillers is a perfect companion to a glass of something on the rocks. – Shop Now
