The Golden Elixir of the West: Whiskey and the Shaping of America (Paperback)

£13.95
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

An insider's look at the iconic drink and its role in shaping the American West



Distilleries are the new microbreweries, cropping up all over the West and producing brands that emulate the predecessors that were made in copper stills by emigrants and served in saloons and dance halls. This history of the spirit and its origins and migration across the country-and its place in shaping the West-celebrates the story of the golden elixir through first-hand accounts, evocative photographs, and historic cocktail recipes.
