Bourbon: The Evolution of Kentucky Whiskey,
by Sam K. Cecil (Turner Publishing, $19.95)

Bourbon doesn't have to be made in Kentucky, but there's no question that's the first state anyone thinks of when this distinctly American whiskey is mentioned. And no one knows more about the history of bourbon in the Bluegrass State than Sam K. Cecil, who began his career in the whiskey business in 1937. He later joined the legendary Bill Samuels at the old Samuels Distillery (later to become world-famous as Maker's Mark) in Loretto, KY, from which he retired in 1980 as VP of Production and Plant Manager.

Cecil's new book is a well-researched volume that spans the entire history of Kentucky's most famous spirit, from the earliest pioneers, to the era of Prohibition, to the household names of today. A fascinating book to delve into, if only to be made wistfully aware of all the Kentucky distilleries and bourbon brands that are no longer around. —David Gadd
