Who Created Bourbon Whiskey?
After years of research, I am naming the most-plausible first bourbon distiller. Want to know who? You'll find out in my new book, Bourbon: The Rise, Fall, and Rebirth of An American Whiskey, available nationwide October 1.You can pre order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Carmichael's, Joseph Beth's, Morris Books, Powell's, and IndieBound bookstores across the country.
Bourbon is my finest work to date and changes bourbon history as we know it. New York Times-bestselling author and James Beard Award-winning chef Sean Brock wrote Bourbon's foreword.
I'm extremely grateful to you for supporting my work. Every day, it's my privilege to cover the wonderful world of whiskey. Thank you for helping me live my dream. Cheers! -Fred

“It’s been clear for some time now that Fred Minnick is America’s finest authority on spirits, and his new book on Bourbon seals the deal. Impeccably researched, beautifully illustrated and written with such informed individuality that reading the book is like listening to the engaging teacher whose lectures enthralled you as much as enlightened you. There’s never a last word on any subject, but Minnick’s new book is unlikely to be exceeded by anything better for a long time to come."—John Mariani, author of The Encyclopedia of American Food and Drink.
