The Moonshiner of the American imagination, hidden in the rural South may be an endangered species, but a new generation of whisky lovers is discovering the art of making moonshine, the small act of civil disobedience that has characterized the home distiller since 1862. This book is a guide to American's indigenous spirit -- from whiskey made by the earliest colonists to the sprawling distilleries of Kentucky to the adventurous craft distillers working today in almost every state. It answers questions that have mystified amateurs and enthusiasts alike, including what, precisely, makes whiskey whiskey. And it is also a manual for how to make homemade whiskey, otherwise known as moonshine, safely and deliciously(if not quite legally). Offering clear instruction and advice, along with recipes for whiskey drinks and dishes and recommendations for outfitting the perfect home bar, this is an indispensable companion for both distiller and drinker, written by the founders of Kings County Distillery, the first in New York City since Prohibition.
