Bourbon: A History of the American Spirit Is A Liquor Biography

Biographies have come a long way since we were all forced to read them in school. But as much as we like reading about the influential people of the past few decades, they don’t hold a candle to bourbon. Bourbon: A History of the American Spirit is a three hundred year tour de force of our favorite corn liquor, as told by Dane Huckelbridge. From Columbus to Congressional resolutions to it’s evolution, Huckelbridge tells a story of bourbon and its ties to America that is almost as fun to read as bourbon is to drink. Almost. It’s so good that Bill Samuels, Jr., president emeritus of Maker’s Mark and a fourth-generation Kentucky bourbon maker, considers it “a must read.”
