whiskey womenThe Untold Story of How Women Saved Bourbon, Scotch & Irish Whiskey ($19.53)
By Fred Minnick
In Whiskey Women-- The Untold Story of How Women Saved Bourbon, Scotch & Irish Whiskey--the first book written on the female contributions to whiskey, Wall Street Journal-bestselling author Fred Minnick tells the tales of women who have created this industry, from Mesopotamia's first beer brewers and distillers to America's rough-and-tough bootleggers during Prohibition.
Women have long distilled, marketed, and owned spirits companies. These strong women built many iconic brands, including Bushmills, Laphroaig, and Maker's Mark. Until now their stories have remained untold.
Fred Minnick is a judge on the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and regularly contributes to Bourbon Review, Caviar Affair, Tasting Panel, Whisky Advocate, Whisky Magazine and many others.
