Editorial Reviews

Review

"Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey adds significant new information to our understanding of the history of the Kentucky whiskey industry." -- Charles Cowdery, author of Bourbon, Straight: The Uncut and Unfiltered Story of American Whiskey



"Historian Michael R. Veach has done the research necessary for a factual but readable history of Kentucky Bourbon. He has crafted it into a storyteller's envy that is both enjoyable and well told." -- Al Young, Brand Ambassador, Four Roses Bourbon and author of Four Roses: The Return of a Whiskey Legend



"Manages to make the history of Bourbon entertaining while providing plenty of insight into how the spirit has gone from lowbrow to top-shelf...A must-read for any Bourbon lover." -- Wine & Spirits



"[...] the book to to add to your whiskey library if you can only choose one this year." -- Epicurious.com



"If you haven't had the pleasure of attending the [Bourbon] Academy, I encourage you to enroll. Until then, reading Mike's book is a close aproximation. This is no dry historical tome (pun intended). Like the Academy, the book takes you on a fascinating journey from the Whiskey Rebellion of the 1790s to the bourbon boom of today, commandingly demonstrating the spirit's inexorable tie to the history of Kentucky. Each chapter is a fine mix of conversational narrative, historic documents and photos, and pull-out boxes of trivia. -- Bourban Babe" -- Bourbon Babe Tumblr



"The text highlights often over-looked aspects of the industry, such as the technology behind the spirit's production--and includes a few of Veach's own theories that may even surprise bourbon afficionados." -- Smithsonian Magazine



"Veach's factual interpretations and possible explanations for myths are quite welcome on a topic with so few other experts... Veach is without question an expert on bourbon whiskey...This book is certainly accessible to a general audience, and is a quick and hearty read for those interested in the history of American whiskey...any library interested in collecting Kentucky history, or Appalachia and the American South more broadly, may also find this text valuable." -- Tennessee Libraries



"Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey...does more than tell the hisotry of Kentucky bourbon...Veach's concise history will appeal to popular readers, those consumers who enjoy craft bourbon and whiskey tourism. Teachers of United States history will also find much to like about this book." -- Ohio Valley History
