The story of bourbon production is a tale of American innovation, industry, and craft. Join photographer Carol Peachee on a visual journey from farm to bottle, with stunning images of the distilleries, farms, copper, brass, and steel works, cooperages and stave mills, and barrel warehouses that transform corn into liquid gold, while former Maker's Mark President Bill Samuels Jr. and whiskey historian Carolyn Brooks trace the impact of historical industries and production methods on the modern bourbon brand. From the ruins and rusted machinery of early distilleries to the flames of a modern barrel factory, 280 full-color photographs of Straight Bourbon offer a rare glimpse into the creation of America's native spirit.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"

"Employing a well-crafted gallery of stunning photographs, Peachee thoughtfully curates a unique perspective of the bourbon industry. This collection poignantly presents every aspect of crafting bourbon, even its oftentimes less-considered elements... This engrossing cross-section of the world of bourbon and its striking photographs take readers closely inside one of the largest growing trends within popular culture. Recommended for public libraries."

Brimming with lush, rich photos of distilleries, stills, farms, stave mills, cooperages and barrel warehouses, the tome combines the story of the rich heritage of Kentucky's native spirit with Peachee's striking images.

Straight Bourbon will teach you more about Bourbon, its history and how it is distilled than any other book. It is simply a delight and pleasure to just hold this book. It must be on your coffee table.
