A great book. It explains a whole lot of stuff about how to distill alcohol & does it in style.

It starts out explaining that distilling alcohol is illegal (at least in the UK and USA). No really. You can go to jail.

It goes on to explain that it can be dangerous too -- it tells the story of 5 guys in America who blew themselves up trying to make their own moonshine.

Having got the safety briefing out of the way, it goes on to provide a cracking history of moonshine in the south of America, how to do it & explains in great deal all the subtle nuances and details.

For anyone who enjoys a whisky, whiskey or bourboun, this is a brilliant book to have.

This is a really interesting read for those interested in bourbon. It touches on the history of bourbon and the main families/businesses that dominate the market. A great easy read. Well presented and one for the book shelf for whisky lovers.

A very informative and insightful wee book drawing on David Haskell's experiences in setting up an illegal, now legal distillery. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This book changed the way I look at spirits. An honest comprehensive broad look at how and why good moonshine is so popular.
Gotta read this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Learn about Whiskey's sorted history in the US, what the bourbon trail is, and many more facts. 26 Dec. 2015
By Will - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a bit underwhelmed by this book, as it's more of a loose collection of whiskey related facts, that culminate in a recipe for a basic corn moonshine.

All in all, about 5 pages of this book are about actually making and distilling alcohol, it's like I googled for a recipe, and had to read some dudes comprehensive forums post about Moonshine, Kentucky, the Different kinds of Bourbons, why you shouldn't care who made your whiskey, but you should care who made your whiskey.

and then another guy posts a recipe below it.

Save yourself 18 bucks, just google it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very well written and full of whiskey history trivia. 16 May 2014
By by JamesD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Very well written and full of whiskey history trivia...but not much more for the home distiller. Great for a history buff or researcher for creating other work. If it's how-to (technique & recipe dos & don'ts) that you want, look elsewhere...there's better information in other Amazon offerings.

I'm starting to learn about whiskey and the book is a valuable tool that gives me insight into the history and process that I really didn't know about. Reading it I felt very inspired to experiment.

A great read even if you aren't going to make your own. Fun, informative, great for anybody interested in American whiskey in general, history, booze science, etc. Would make a great gift or coffee table book. Hard to put down, you'll probably plow through it in a day or two. That said, I used it for tips to help me make whiskey. And it was good.
