April's Bourbon Country Reader is here (in May)

Well, it was still April when it went to the printer.

Every year or so we do a 'State of Bourbon' story. This time it's a bit of recent history, the last 40 years or so.

As a way of saying where we are today, we assess America's whiskey production capacity, which has increased considerably in recent years. About half of that growth has come from existing distillery expansions, the rest from new distilleries.

Current subscribers should receive their copies in the next few days. New subscribers can get on the bandwagon by clicking here.

The Bourbon Country Reader is the oldest publication devoted entirely to American whiskey. It is a charming mix of news, history, analysis, and product reviews. Do you worry that advertising spending influences coverage in other publications? No chance of that here since The Bourbon Country Reader is 100 percent reader-supported. It accepts no advertising.

To experience The Bourbon Country Reader for yourself, you need to subscribe. Honoring tradition, The Bourbon Country Reader still comes to you exclusively on paper, in an envelope, via the USPS.

A subscription to The Bourbon Country Reader is still just $20 per year for addresses in the USA, $25 for everyone else. The Bourbon Country Reader is published six times a year, more-or-less, but your subscription always includes six issues no matter how long it takes.

Click here to subscribe with PayPal or any major credit card, or for more information. Click here for a free sample issue (in PDF format). Click here to open or download the free PDF document, "The Bourbon Country Reader Issue Contents in Chronological Order." (It's like an index.)

If you want to catch up on what you've missed, bound back issue volumes are available for $20 each, or three for $50.

If you prefer to pay by check, make it payable to Made and Bottled in Kentucky, and mail it to Made and Bottled in Kentucky, 3712 N. Broadway, PMB 298, Chicago, IL 60613-4198. Checks drawn on U.S. banks only, please.

I've been a subscriber for some time, and, although the content of the Reader occasionally intersects the blog, the Reader has a lot more content, more information, and more Cowdery opinion (and isn't that one of the best parts?). If you're only reading the blog, you're missing A TON of great info!

I received my issue yesterday, and I really enjoyed the article about American whiskey, past, present, and future. Thanks Chuck.
