Craft Beer and small-batch distillers are hot right now. We are seeing more and more opening doors everyday. Not only is this helping bring new trade to American workers, it also means better brews and beverages for those of us that love to saddle up at the bar. Authors Colin Spoelman and David Haskell are the founders of Kings County Distillers, the oldest whiskey distillery in New York City, and the first in operation since Prohibition. Colin is a former rooftop moonshiner from Kentucky, and David is the great grandson of a Prohibition-era bootlegger from New York.
With more street cred than most, the duo have recently created a set of handsome journals designed to guide whiskey enthusiasts through a personal exploration of the multifaceted spirit. The hardcover journal has guided pages for tasting notes, worksheets for the home distiller, and a fold-out poster of the American Whiskey Family Tree.
Keep this notebook handy during your travels or near your favorite cigar pairing patio. Develop your tastebuds and impress your friends with all the new knowledge you’ll be soaking up. You can purchase Whiskey Notes for $15 on Amazon here. Learn more at Abrams Books.
