By Henry G. Crowgey

Bourbon whiskey could be Kentucky's so much precise product. regardless of bourbon's prominence within the social and financial lifetime of the Bluegrass kingdom, many myths and legends encompass its origins. In Kentucky Bourbon, Henry C. Crowgey claims that distilled spirits and pioneer payment went hand in hand; Isaac Shelby, the state's first governor, used to be between Kentucky's pioneer distillers. Crowgey lines the drink's historical past from its beginnings as a cottage to steam-based advertisement operations within the interval previous to the Civil conflict. From "spirited" camp conferences, to bourbon's use as a medium of trade for items and companies, to the industry's coming of age within the mid-nineteenth century, the tale of Kentucky bourbon is an engaging bankruptcy within the state's early background.
