Overview

This book is a backstage pass into the world of small-scale distilling of whiskies, gins, vodkas, brandies, and more. The reader, the ultimate spirits aficionado, will learn how water and grain are transformed into the full range exquisite, timeless liquors.

Most of the other spirits books chronicle the historical side of the distilling world or focus on the flavors of various vintages. Our book will be the consummate insider's guide to distilling techniques. Bill Owens' original photography, the result of two cross-country road trips, offers comprehensive illustration of the microdistilling world.

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.
