What People are Saying About This
"Authors Peggy Noe Stevens and Susan Reigler, much like my grandmother Margie Samuels, are experts in popularizing and beautifying the world of bourbon. Throughout the book, Stevens contributes a grace and style which have been constants throughout her long, varied career as a marketer, event planner, and global advocate for all things bourbon. Reigler blends a biologist's passion for the science behind bourbon with the discerning palate of a true foodie. Which Fork Do I Use With My Bourbon? provides the next best thing to sitting between them at a bourbon-themed dinner in my Kentucky home." Rob Samuels, chief distillery officer of Maker's Mark
