Copies of Whiskey: A Global History (Reaktion Books, 2010) are now selling in the U.S., U.K., and elsewhere around the globe. A worldwide list of retailers offering the book can be found here.
Jason Wilson, author of Boozehound, and the spirits columnist at the Washington Post, wrote a wonderful review of the book—
‘Whiskey,’ at 144 pages, is the perfect primer for the person who wants to quickly learn the basics…. Instead, his book is for more typical folks, many of whom have difficulty sorting out their single-malt Scotches from their bourbons from their Irish whiskeys.”
