A new generation of urban bootleggers is distilling whiskey at home, and cocktail enthusiasts have embraced the nuances of brown liquors. Written by the founders of Kings County Distillery, New York City’s first distillery since Prohibition, this spirited illustrated book explores America’s age-old love affair with whiskey. It begins with chapters on whiskey’s history and culture from 1640 to today, when the DIY trend and the classic cocktail craze have conspired to make it the next big thing. For those thirsty for practical information, the book next provides a detailed, easy-to-follow guide to safe home distilling, complete with a list of supplies, step-by-step instructions, and helpful pictures, anecdotes, and tips. The final section focuses on the contemporary whiskey scene, featuring a list of microdistillers, cocktail and food recipes from the country’s hottest mixologists and chefs, and an opinionated guide to building your own whiskey collection. Praise for The Kings County Distillery Guide to Urban Moonshining: “The moonshining world is notoriously full of orally-perpetuated misinformation and the legitimate whiskey industry is full of marketing lies and half-truths; Spoelman and Haskell have thankfully defied those traditions and released an educational book of honesty and transparency.” —Serious Eats

Home Production of Vodkas, Infusion and Liqueurs is another first of its kind book from Stanley and Adam Marianski. This is not just a collection of recipes, but a set of rules that govern the process of making vodka and other alcoholic beverages. A quote from the book: "From the start, we decided not to write another recipe book. A collection of recipes does not make a person proficient in a new skill. You have to know the How and Why of making spirits; you have to know the rules that govern the process. First of all you have to realize that alcohol is just a tool, albeit a very important one. Once you understand how to manipulate the properties of alcohol, the rest will fall into place." To get the reader started, a collection of 103 detailed recipes are included, which can be studied and used as a reference. By carefully reading this book you will discover that producing new spirits is almost like cooking, one needs to first know the basics and then let the imagination run wild. Everything falls into place and making new drinks becomes routine. After practicing the technique of creating drinks a couple of times, the spirits will consistently be of high quality, become crystal clear and look beautiful. The process can become an art form.
