REVIEWED BY: Chris Carlsson, SpiritsReview.com
A full 129 pages longer than the first edition ( published last year), this second edition of one of the best reference book s on micro distilleries in North America adds to the older editions roster of disitlleries with a wealth of detail on the distilleries themselves, people, products, tasting notes, drinks, contact information, tours and hours, to name but a few of the details for each distilery.
While we thought the first edition was fairly exhaustive, this one adds spirit festivals, events, museums, as part of the guide along wih an index by spirit type (quite useful for those searching for particular types of micro distilled spirits and only list we know of ) along with distilling associations, guilds and resources- in short almost anything you might want to know about a distillery, the industry itself or how to contact or source people and information from all over North America involved in distilling.
A must have reference for anyone, distributor, liquor store or restaurant owner or ultimate consumer, who is at all interested in the new spirits revolution sweeping the United States and Canada.
Well written, a great read, and a massive amount of interesting details on every distillery. Micro Distilleries in the U.S. and Canada is a must for any student or enthusiast of drink as the reference standard for the industry. No where will you find a more comprehensive yet accesible reference on this subject in one well laid out book – and after our years in the indstry searching for just such a reference we should know.
We have spent years researching and gathering our own information and are humbled by reading this work.
