Overview

The Art of Distillng Whiskey and Other Spirits is an encyclopedic guide to the thousand-year history and dynamic future of the distillation of whiskey, vodka, gin, rum, brandy, and more.  This carefully researched book will give the reader a comprehensive understanding and appreciation of just what is acutally in those bottles on the back bar.

This book shows how the basic ingredients—water and grain—are transformed into a full range of superb, timeless liquors and even moonshine. Most other books on spirits chronicle the historical side of distilling or focus on the flavors of various vingages, but in this book, the actual craft of distilling is covered in depth. 

Readers will find a thorough examination of distilling techniques along with information on the varieties of stills and equipment used to create these exquisite libations. Whether you are an industry professional, a novice, or simply appreciate a fine dram, this is a must-have book for you.

    American Micro distilling

    The title is a bit misleading as the book covers all kinds of spirits made by the distillers in the US, and not only Whiskey. It concentrates on the many new Artisan or Micro distilleries here in the US rather than the typical whiskey book concentration on the main Bourbon/Tennesse whiskey industry. Production details on equipment and raw materials and information on regulations for different spirit types gives good information, and a number of small personal profiles give more depth on the people leading the new trend in distilling. The book is packed with many high quality photos and also many labels for more products than one thought possible to find.

    In short a good buy for anyone interested in finding the small independent distilleries making many interesting products all over the USA.
