"Bourbon: A History Of The American Spirit" By Dane Huckelbridge
Few commodities figure as prominently or as intimately in the story of the nation as bourbon whiskey. Bourbon is Dane Huckelbridge's artful and imaginative biography of our most well-liked, and at times controversial, spirit, that is also a witty and entertaining chronicle of the United States itself.
In telling the story of bourbon, Huckelbridge takes us on a lively tour across three hundred years. Introducing the fascinating people central to its creation and evolution, he illuminates the elusive character of the nation itself.
