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.

To the majority of persons alcohol denotes liquor. That it is used to some extent in the arts, that it is a fuel, is also common knowledge, but alcohol as a source of power, as a substitute for gasoline, petroleum, and kindred hydrocarbons was hardly known to the generality of Americans until the passage of the "De-naturing Act" by Congress in 1906. "The Practical Handbook on the Distillation of Alcohol from Farm Products," published in 1922 during Prohibition, includes the process of malting, mashing and macerating, fermenting and distilling alcohol from grain, beets, potatoes, molasses, etc. with chapters on alcoholometry and the de-naturing of alcohol for use in farm engines, automobiles, launch motors, and in heating and lighting, with a synopsis of the New Free Alcohol Law and its Amendment and the Government regulations.
