American whiskey has never been more popular than it is today and the industry is healthier than at any time in the last 50 years or so. Sales are up domestically and internationally. Every year, Kentucky sets new tourism records. Micro-distilleries are appearing throughout the land.
The Bourbon Boom is surely good for the companies that make and sell bourbon, but is it good for us, the folks who merely buy and drink the stuff?
We examine that question in the new issue of The Bourbon Country Reader, which dropped Friday.
You really should subscribe. The June, 2012 issue of The Bourbon Country Reader is Volume 14, Number 4. In it, we also offer some glassware tips and launch a new project designed to unlock the mystery of bourbons past.
The Bourbon Country Reader is produced and delivered the old-fashioned way; ink on paper, in an envelope, delivered personally to your home or office by a uniformed representative of the United States government.
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 (we missed April), but your subscription always includes six issues.
