whiskeyThe publisher’s description of 99 Drams of Whiskey: the Accidental Hedonist’s Quest for the Perfect Shot and the History of the Drink as “part travelogue, part distillery guide, and part history book” is accurate but lacking. This book is fun! It is a great idea for a vacation, to visit whiskey distilleries. Ms. Hopkins kept her book an easy read by balancing the density of history with whiskey tasting notes and anecdotes from her visits to renowned distilleries. I thought I knew about the different whiskeys until I read this book. I need to further my education. Check out her blog where she reviews beer, foods, and all other things.

One Thought on “99 Drams of Whiskey by Kate Hopkins

  1. I don’t know much about whiskey, and I’ve never been a big fan, but a trip to Kentucky a few years ago got me interested. That smell of mash when I drove past the Jim Beam distillery left me wondering just how whiskey is made. I never really followed through on that, other than deciding I should taste taste a few Kentucky bourbons! I think I will check out this book to educate myself.
