Whisk(e)y, for lack of a better phrase, is back. The dark liquor — a favorite of cowboys, Prohibition-era gangsters and mixologists — has gained a huge following in the past ten years, with U.S. distillers increasing from just 69 to more than 400. Naturally, whiskey newbies are curious, and expert Heather Greene has answered nearly every question imaginable in her new book Whisk(e)y Distilled: A Populist Guide to the Water of Life. Part ode and part guide, a quick read will ensure you don’t fumble when sampling the popular drink.
Join Greene as she discusses her new tome in the cozy Book Passage setting. Enjoy anecdotes, learn some new vocabulary, and afterwards head next door to the Brick and Bottle for a quick nip and see what all the fuss is about.
