Gift Guide 2013: Kings County Distillery Guide to Urban Moonshining

November 14th, 2013

I came across this book today when I was out wandering around and ended up standing there, reading in the store, for a good 20 minutes or so. I have made my own hard cider, but distilling has always seemed more complicated and challenging. This book provides some history and also a few recipes for making your own.


“A new generation of urban bootleggers is distilling whiskey at home, and cocktail enthusiasts have embraced the nuances of brown liquors. Written by the founders of Kings County Distillery, New York City’s first distillery since Prohibition, this spirited illustrated book explores America’s age-old love affair with whiskey. It begins with chapters on whiskey’s history and culture from 1640 to today, when the DIY trend and the classic cocktail craze have conspired to make it the next big thing. For those thirsty for practical information, the book next provides a detailed, easy-to-follow guide to safe home distilling, complete with a list of supplies, step-by-step instructions, and helpful pictures, anecdotes, and tips. The final section focuses on the contemporary whiskey scene, featuring a list of micro-distillers, cocktail and food recipes from the country’s hottest mixologists and chefs, and an opinionated guide to building your own whiskey collection.”
