    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    I will have some books there, but UPK has sold all of the first printing and evidently only ordered a thousand more for the second printing. I am not sure I will have the books to sell so I would say order off Amazon while you can.

    Thanks for the reply Mike I placed my order on Amazon and should have the book well before the sampler.

    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    I was having lunch with Bill Samuels yesterday and discussing the book. He pointed out that I was a bit misleading in saying the 1950s was a golden age for bourbon. More correctly it was a golden age for bourbon consummers, but not distillers. He correctly pointed out the over production by Schenley forced them to close their smaller distilleries and kept prices low forcing independent small distilleries out of business as well. He is right.

    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    Purchased my copy from Mike at his book signing Saturday at the Getz Museum in Bardstown. I was with Paul, Gary and Scott. Mike signed our books, and took the time to chat with us for a little bit. Hope to start reading it soon.

    I want to thank you all who came out and bought a book and supported the Oscar Getz Museum.

    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    I picked up several copies at the Getz when Mike was signing them I gave one copy to my father,who finished it in one day,he said he couldn't put it down.My father said that he enjoyed all of the factual information,Mike's straight forward style of writing and the basic overall structure of the text.I look forward to starting my read soon,I doubt I'll finish it in a day,but I do have some free over this weekend so who knows.

    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage

    We're finalising our annual Amazon order this month and I've got two copies in the cart (one is for a fellow SB member). I did wonder if these will be the first copies in Australia?
