    Re: Red Likker

    I may put this one off for a while. I don't read a lot of novels. It does sound interesting, though.

    Thanks.

    Re: \"But Always Fine Bourbon\"

    My sister Sally has written, with my help, another chapter to the book. It covers the Van Winkle business from my father's death til the present. She is down to just a few dozen copies which she wants to hang on to. That's why Amazon does not carry the book anymore. We plan on having the new edition out in June or July. The book will be available on our web site also.

    Re: \"But Always Fine Bourbon\"

    Thanks Julian, that's good to know as I have been trying to find a copy lately with no success. While I enjoy reading historical accounts of the bourbon industry, I also want to know how things work today. I look forward to the additional chapter!

    Re: \"But Always Fine Bourbon\"

    I will almost certainly buy a copy of the new edition for the extra chapter, but am still glad I found a copy of the original. As a lifelong collector -- of this, that and another thing -- there's something special about originals of anything. It's no secret to you, Julian, how specially interesting your family is, but please convey my (our?) appreciation to your sister for her part in preserving it.

    Re: \"But Always Fine Bourbon\"

    I'm in the process of ordering a copy from A Taste of Kentucky.com We are just working out the final shipping costs now. (The initial shipping quote was more than the book.)
    It doesn't say if it is the updated edition or the original - time will tell...

    I'd also like to add my thanks to Sally & Julian for giving us the opportunity to read about their family

    Re: \"But Always Fine Bourbon\"

    Julian, thanks for the information - I did get the shipping sorted not long after making my post. US$9 instead of US$33

    I tried looking for the book in the gift shop at Buffalo Trace.com but couldn't find it. I found it easily enough on the Van Winkle web site though...

    Re: \"But Always Fine Bourbon\"

    The book arrived today - it is the updated edition, and, I have to say that it is one of the best presented & best looking books I've seen. A true credit.
    It (and Chuck's book) will take pride of place & be on display when the downstairs bar is finally finished.
    And now, I'm off to start some very enjoyable reading.......

    Re: \"But Always Fine Bourbon\"

    Out of interest - does the ribbon with the Kentucky Blue Grass seeds attached in a little bag come with the book, or are they something A Taste of Kentucky put around it?
    It was definately a neat idea

    ***wonders if I plant them in a pot, will they grow?
