Bourbon is Kentucky's claim to distilled spirits fame, with brands like Maker's Mark, Woodford Reserve, Wild Turkey, Old Fitzgerald, Four Roses, and Early Times, to name only a few, known all around the world. But in Kentucky's past the bourbon industry was much bigger that it is today. There were thousands of distilleries all over the state, in practically every county, producing brands that were know and popular. What happened to those distilleries? Prohibition killed off most of them, and the rest were either consolidated into larger distilleries, or went bankrupt as they neared the 20th century. Bourbon aficionado Chet Zoeller, determined to preserve this important part of Kentucky history, conducted multi-year research to catalog and describe every distillery that ever existed in the Commonwealth. He has compiled his findings into this important volume, Bourbon in Kentucky, the first authoritative catalog of distilleries in Kentucky. Hundreds of rare photographs of early distilleries accompany the listings. Also included are sections on the history of bourbon distilling, how bourbon differs from other distilled spirits, and hot to taste and enjoy bourbon.
