I was a little slow in getting out this issue of the newsletter. It's about a month late. Sorry about that. But by waiting I was able to report in detail about the innovative new bourbon from Maker's Mark, Maker's Mark 46, which should start to appear in stores in July. I report the complete, inside story of its development.
In case you're scoring at home, the new Bourbon Country Reader is Volume 12, Number 6, which completes Volume 12.
This time we look forward with Maker's 46, but we also look back and explore the history of 'light whiskey,' a failed experiment but one that may actually have saved bourbon and rye as we know them. It's an amazing story.
We also review a brand new bourbon cookbook. We like it. And, in fact, I do speak for everyone here at Reader Tower.
What? You say you don't receive The Bourbon Country Reader? It's very nostalgic, as it comes on paper, in an envelope, in the mail. (That's what the little box outside your front door is for.)
Subscriptions to The Bourbon Country Reader are $20/year for U.S. addresses. $24.50 for Canada, and $28.50 for everybody else. It is published six times a year. Well, maybe not, but your subscription always includes six issues. Click here to subscribe with PayPal or any major credit card.
