Details: Product Description Oaky and full-bodied, prized throughout the world but distinctly American, with deep roots in the Kentucky hills and hollers... Bourbon has continued to grow as the spirit of choice by alcohol lovers across the globe, but many drinkers have a limited understanding of how bourbon is made. While there may be a hundred books on the subject, few break down the science of bourbon in uncomplicated terms as this lavishly-illustrated book does. A university professor for 50 years, Dr. Tim Berra has developed this authoritative guidebook on all things bourbon in a straightforward, easy to understand format. Berra answers the question "What is Bourbon?" in a style both beginners and aficionados will appreciate, distilling the basics of bourbon into refined sips that are easily consumed. Now anyone can effortlessly become more informed by reading Bourbon: What the Educated Drinker Should Know and gain a better understanding of this All-American beverage. Knowledge enhances enjoyment! " Pre-Publication review: A concise, yet thorough summary of bourbon facts and history. Bourbon: What the Educated Drinker Should Know would certainly be the recommended text for Bourbon 101. Susan Reigler, contributing writer, Bourbon+ and American Whiskey Magazine and co-author of The Bourbon Tasting Notebook Pre-Publication review: Bourbon drinkers could not ask for a better guide to the history and science behind their favorite dram. Tim Berra's experience as a college professor serves him - and us - well. Clearly, intelligently explained, 'Bourbon' is a great introduction to the category.Clay Risen, author, American Whiskey, Bourbon & Rye: A Guide to the Nation's Favorite Spirit and Single Malt: A Guide to the Whiskies of Scotland Pre-Publication review: There are many books on the subject of Bourbon, but this one by Tim Berra should be everyone's FIRST.Bernie Lubbers, Heaven Hill Distillery's Whiskey Professor and author, Bourbon Whiskey: Our Native Spirit EDITORIAL REVIEWS: "As I flipped through the pages I noticed this was no ordinary whiskey book....This is more of a quick reference for all things bourbon. I absolutely loved the simple and concise descriptions of column and pot stills....I also loved the scientific detail about the differential in proof between the very high levels of rickhouse and the very low levels...There are some really great pearls of wisdom throughout the book....Perhaps the greatest is this: 'Time is an ingredient.' The easy reference format makes it a great addition to any bourbon library. Maggie Kimberl, American Whiskey “If you are still flummoxed by the arcana of bourbon history, bourbon terminology, and the bourbon making process, a valuable guide written by Ohio State University biology professor emeritus and executive bourbon steward Tim Berra is a book you need. Bourbon: What the Educated Drinker Should Know contains pages filled with bourbon basics arranged as bullet points with photographic illustrations and they are presented in impeccably logical order. What else would you expect from a scientist? One might say that say Dr. Berra is the Mr. Spock of bourbon.” Susan Reigler. Review The dedicated researcher came up with the idea for a new style of book...This is really two books in one... The front section contains the basics, sort of a 'bourbon for beginners.' The back part of the book is the 'advanced course'...where [Berra] has included extra information that embellishes what is on the front pages --Mansfield News Journal 26 May 2019. When I first agreed to review [this book], I was skeptical.... What could a book for beginners tell me that I didn't know?... Turns out it was a lot...[This] is a beautifully composed book.... I highly recommend this book. It is a must have for someone beginning their bourbon journey and would make a great gift. Those well into their bourbon journey will enjoy it as well. Enjoyable read, absolutely worth the time and money. --Lee Stang, bourbonba
