Featuring a handpicked selection of recipes along with delicious details about particularities that arose with each new variation, this delightful guide is essential reading.

Michael R. Veach's new book Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey : An American Heritage, reveals the true story of bourbon. Starting with the Whiskey Rebellion of the 1790's, he traces the history of bourbon through the present. While the true origin of the spirit may never be known for certain, Veach evaluates the popular legends and proposes a compelling new theory.
