about this item

Discover the underdog story of the improbable rise of small-batch distilling in America in Tom Acitelli’s new Whiskey Business. This bracingly written, fast-paced work traces the relationship of Americans to spirits such as bourbon, scotch, vodka, gin, and rum. And it presents the full story of how a plucky band of entrepreneurs disrupted the nation’s conception of how those libations could appear and taste—and how much they could cost.
            Acitelli weaves the unlikely triumph of the small-batch distilling movement into other major trends, including a neo-Prohibitionism that nearly croaked the entire thing, America’s re-embrace of cocktails, and the twin rises of craft beer and fine wine. He also expertly delves into the controversies currently wracking American spirits, ones that threaten to tank the movement at the moment of what should be its greatest triumph.
            Whiskey Business is an indispensable book for the growing legions of spirits aficionados as well as for fans of good food and drink in general.
