Présentation de l'éditeur

A new generation of urban bootleggers is distilling whiskey at home, and cocktail enthusiasts have embraced the nuances of brown liquors. Written by the founders of Kings County Distillery, New York City's first distillery since Prohibition, this spirited illustrated book explores America's age-old love affair with whiskey. It begins with chapters on whiskey's history and culture from 1640 to today, when the DIY trend and the classic cocktail craze have conspired to make it the next big thing. For those thirsty for practical information, the book next provides a detailed, easy-to-follow guide to safe home distilling, complete with a list of supplies, step-by-step instructions, and helpful pictures, anecdotes, and tips. The final section focuses on the contemporary whiskey scene, featuring a list of microdistillers, cocktail and food recipes from the country's hottest mixologists and chefs, and an opinionated guide to building your own whiskey collection.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Un livre pour les amateurs de l'histoire des spiritueux. 19 décembre 2013
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
C'est bien écrit, par un homme qui à vécu l'aventure de la micro distillation. L'approche est factuelle mais en alternant des petites anecdotes l'auteur s'ouvre à un public plus large (sans être un roman)

3.0 étoiles sur 5 More about the history and current brands of whiskey than making it yourself. 2 novembre 2013
Par Mark Freeman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I really enjoyed this book and burned through it in about 2 days. I learned quite a bit about the various brands of whiskey and the laws surrounding how it is named, etc. My only complaint is that the book is titled "Guide to Urban Moonshining" and only spends one chapter on the subject. There are definitely other resources that offer more information on the subject if that is your goal in learning how. That beings said, the book was a fun read and inspired me to visit my local state store to pick up a bottle of Elijah Craig. I suggest picking up a bottle to sip on while you read this book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not bad, wish it had more about distilling 25 janvier 2014
Par Darren - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
It was a pretty decent read, but I anticipated more of a how to guide rather than a breakdown of what's going on in the world of craft distilling. It did have some great insight into how the world of whisk(e)y works, especially in Bourbon production. The section on distilling was informational, but barely scratches the surface of what I was looking for.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bartender approved. Grab a glass of bourbon and sit down with this book. 16 décembre 2013
Par Joanthan Peterson - Publié sur Amazon.com

As a bartender I found it extensive and detailed enough to satiate my desire for more knowledge than the average drinker is likely seeking, and yet Haskell has a concise and approachable writing style that makes it accessible for the lay drinker or newly of age looking for a better path than copious amounts of Keystone and Natty Ice.

Not only a very decent intro to distilling at home, but a very insightful look at the whiskey business as a whole. It takes you through the entire process from harvest to point of sale, and is sure to teach something to even the most seasoned of bourbon drinkers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Just about everything Whiskey 18 novembre 2013

I'm not much of a whiskey drinker but neither am I a teetotaler. As a beekeeper I've had some experience with honey having turned to alcohol, though, and I've made a few batches of beer, too. But I've always had a thought of making some 'whiskey'. Even contacted the ATF offices some years back. Now that I've some time available the idea has reemerged and I was surprised to learn of 'The Kings County Distillery'. Kings county is Brooklyn and I'm a native of that N.Y.C. borough.

I decided to read the book before I toured the distillery and found that Colin Spoelman and David Haskell have included more information on the subject of whiskey in their "Guide to Urban Moonshining", than I had hoped for. Their information on the history of whiskey making held my interest as did all about distilling. It isn't a how to book per se, but Included is information on stills and still making, and there are links for purchasing stills and equipment as well as recipes. I enjoyed it all immensely.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 interesting read 7 février 2014

I got this as a present for my bf. He really enjoys drinking whiskey, so I thought he'd also enjoy making it. However, this book isn't actually about making whiskey. It is more of a history of the Brooklyn distillery. Interesting still, but not what was expected.
