I’ve reviewed Fred Minnick’s Whiskey Women: The Untold Story of How Women Saved Bourbon, Scotch, and Irish Whiskeyfor an airline magazine, so I can’t say too much about it here. But a little: it’s a fascinating look at the role that women had in creating the spirits world we have today. I was surprised the entire way. I breezed through the book, sometimes taking it with me to the gym so I could read on the stationary bicycle, and I said “oh” so many times on one ride that I think I annoyed the lady next to me (sorry).
It’ll be published in October.
