Présentation de l'éditeur

A. H. Hirsch Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a legendary spirit whose rise parallels the revival of the American whiskey industry itself after nearly 30 years of flat sales and discouraged marketers. It is also the story of a small distillery in Schaefferstown, Pennsylvania, whose fame dates back to the 1750s, and whose final collapse prefaced its famous product's reign. Seemingly the story of a single product, it touches numerous strands of American history and includes a colorful cast of characters, from the whiskey-making Beams, to the giants of the post-Prohibition distilled spirits business, to the mysterious Mr. Hirsch himself. A great product needs a great story, and A. H. Hirsch Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey had that in abundance. A one-of-a-kind whiskey, it was only around for about 20 years and is now largely out of circulation, but even now tasting it may not be quite impossible. Charles Cowdery is one of the most acclaimed writers about whiskey and whiskey-making in the United States. The author of Bourbon, Straight; The Uncut And Unfiltered Story Of American Whiskey, he is a Kentucky Colonel and a member of the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book about an interesting topic 15 octobre 2012

This is a great book. It is not very long but it is very very dense. It takes you from the begining of bourbon making in the USA to present day. All all while being tied to the super rare A.H. Hirsch bourbon. I read this book over the course of one night and learned more about bourbon than I had in the past year. This book is definitely worth a read if you are marginally interested in bourbon or American history in general. Oh, and thanks to the book I found a place that has this bourbon and it is very delicious.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I love whiskey history 23 mai 2014

I have picked up many whiskey books that were long on words but not very rich in substance. This little book is quite the opposite. It is a very dense history on one small down and out distillery that happened to make great whiskey. Woven in and out of the story is loads of overlapping history of more well known names, places, and disllieries.

This is a great read that will stick with you long after you have put it down. It gives the whiskey enthusiast much to discuss with like minded people.

Being relatively new to Bourbon and aware of this author i thought it'd be worth the chance. Read it all in one sitting (was bleary eyed by the end). He clearly takes his craft very professionally, and i have recommended this book to anyone who like Bourbon and will listen to me.

This book describes the complicated history of a bourbon product that ended up being bottled under the label of A.H. Hirsch Reserve. As the title reads, it was distilled back in 1974. Very few bottles exist today of what is described as a great bourbon.

The demand for bourbon fell during the 70s and 80s. At that time many of the small distilleries were producing mashes under numerous labels for different customers. Since making whiskey requires a large investment up front and the product cannot be sold for several years many of the distilleries were owned by banks.

The distillery for this particular product was located in Pennsylvania and is no longer in existence. When the distillery went bankrupt many barrels of whiskey were aging in barrels. An investor/broker purchased the stock during an auction, stored the bourbon in steel containers for many years before having it bottled when the demand for bourbon increased, under the A.H. Hirsch label that was owned by the broker.

The bourbon had a great taste and quickly became high in demand that came with a price. Some folks have run across this product in small town stores and bought up the entire stock.

Bourbon lovers will enjoy the history.

I'm a bourbon geek, and I know a bit about bourbon and its history. I thought I knew a little about AH Hirsch till I read Chuck's book. It's a good book, written by a guy that knows what he's talking about when it comes to the history of bourbon. If you're the least bit interested in bourbon and/or its history, this book is a must have, as is Chuck's other book, Bourbon Straight. Fun, interesting, and very well written.
