    Hardcover Ï Bourbon Empire PDF Ì bourbon kindle, empire book, Bourbon Empire PDFEPUB All bourbon is whiskey but not all whiskey is bourbon Entertaining historical account on the spirit of bourbon that spans from Washington the Revolutionary War to Repeal of Prohibition the Twenty First Amendment to Bourbon branding and resurgence todayEach chapter has an interesting historical trait of the bourbon industry The author discusses key family owned and operated distilleries across the US and those who supported and promoted the bourbon brand He also shares such great pivotal moments Old Bourbon being served at the first Kentucky Derby; its contribution to the creation of NASCAR; its influence on F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby to name a fewI was especially surprised by Chicago’s connection and influence towards the spirit of bourbon – not to mention

    Hardcover Ï Bourbon Empire PDF Ì bourbon kindle, empire book, Bourbon Empire PDFEPUBI had a hard time choosing between 3 and 4 stars for this book The author has a wealth of interesting information to share but most importantly he is a good storyteller and his love of the topic is infectious Parts of the book are fascinating I especially liked seeing how the opinions on bourbon changed throughout American history spanning the civil war the western frontier prohibition of course the industrial captains of industry age and the modern craft fooddrink movement The bourbon industry seems to have than its fair share of colorful characters Also interesting to get a view behind the curtain at how major distilleries construct a storyhistoryimage to fit the notions that consumers expect out of a bourbonThe reason I struggled to give it that 4th star is largely a matter of editing The book jumped about uite a bit sometimes dry history sometimes fascinating storytelling sometime

    Hardcover Ï Bourbon Empire PDF Ì bourbon kindle, empire book, Bourbon Empire PDFEPUBI don’t know why I am fascinated with these biography of things books I suppose if you are a history lover such as me a biography is a biography no matter the topic Still who would have thought to write a history of bourbon Who knew there would be enough compelling information to hold a reader’s interest for 320 pages I don’t drink the stuff nor know anybody who does Yet this was compelling because ALL of the information was newEven though the content was previously unknown to me it was not the most exciting topic that’s why I gave it 3 stars meaning I liked it It was however a very interesting read and if you like learning about things that you typically do not give much thought to you may find this biography of interest

    Hardcover Ï Bourbon Empire PDF Ì bourbon kindle, empire book, Bourbon Empire PDFEPUBIt’s America’s whisky and Reid Mitenbuler traces the history of bourbon back to the first president Turns out the spirit is closely tied to the country that gave birth to it Backwoods individualism to corporate shenanigans outright criminal activities to being an essential staple of war For a spirit that cultivates it’s craft heritage it’s become a mass produced product created by only a handful of distillers It enjoys a rip roaring mythic history that makes for an entertaining read

    Hardcover Ï Bourbon Empire PDF Ì bourbon kindle, empire book, Bourbon Empire PDFEPUBThe author takes you on a journey just like our country has been forged through the history of immigrants and does the same with bourbon whiskey rye and the differences How they are produced still in certain regions because that is where their ancestors emigrated to from Scotland Germany Ireland How that before that revolution most people were drinking rum and then like most things the British started taxing the rum at a higher rate so the whiskey or bourdon being produced in Tennessee and Kentucky started making it to the bigger cities Now after the war and formation of our country we did the same thing That is tax the whiskey called simply the whiskey tax and this was just one of the many things that Jefferson and Hamilton argued over An agreement was brokered and for the most part that stayed in place until the early 1900’s when the food act

    Hardcover Ï Bourbon Empire PDF Ì bourbon kindle, empire book, Bourbon Empire PDFEPUBThe book is both repetitive and unfocused Sentences are repeated almost verbatim from one page to the next This book reads like a rough draft or notes not an actual history of American whiskey I'm pretty sure the editor gave up around page 10 Unlike the editor I kept going and felt the lack I would love my time back You'll get a better history of whiskey touring the Jack Daniels and Jim Beam distilleries than you will from this book

    Hardcover Ï Bourbon Empire PDF Ì bourbon kindle, empire book, Bourbon Empire PDFEPUBuick impression This is a very interesting book that looks at the history of bourbon its influence on US history and culture as well as a good look at the business and industry It also debunks a good amount of myths around bourbon For the audio version good narrator However the book does skip around a bit and in audio means you may feel you missed something; transitions not that great Still worth a read Full review on my blog later
