Product Description

Review

.".". This crisply written book is more than just a history of distillers, and is, in addition, the story of the saloon and the impetus to close down this uniquely American Institution."-- "Tuscan Citizen"" --

Product Description

The distinctive beverage of the Western world, bourbon is Kentucky's illustrious gift to the world of spirits. Although the story of American whiskey is recorded in countless lively pages of our nation's history, the place of bourbon in the American cultural record has long awaited detailed and objective presentation. Not a recipe book or a barman's guide, but a fascinating and informative contribution to Americana, The Social History of Bourbon reflects an aspect of our national cultural identity that many have long suppressed or overlooked. Gerald Carson explores the impact of the liquor's presence during America's early development, as well as bourbon's role in some of the more dramatic events in American history, including the Whiskey Rebellion, the scandals of the Whiskey Ring, and the "whiskey forts" of the fur trade. The Social History of Bourbon is a revealing look at the role of this classic beverage in the development of American manners and culture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative with a ton of really cool history. Would be a great read for anyone ... 1 Nov 2014

Very informative with a ton of really cool history. Would be a great read for anyone interested in history more broadly, even if their interest isn't specifically in bourbon. That said it is a bit difficult to follow from time to time and I found myself having to reread pages far more often than usual. In any case, highly recommended.
