Breathtaking photographs of Amy Winehouse on the cusp of fame, including many never-before-seen images.

Whiskey America

Dominic Roskrow
Authors:
Dominic Roskrow

What can we expect from the best whiskey producers in America today? Whiskey America showcases some of the most exciting new styles of whiskey and why they are so special. With fascinating interviews with some of the leading characters in the recent distilling revolution, this absorbing book relates the stories of how successful lawyers, doctors and city slickers made the life-changing decision to turn their backs on conventional careers to pursue the 'good life' of making spirits in the most far-flung outreaches of America. And thank goodness they did, because this new generation of distillers not only customized conventional whiskey styles but also invented new ones never seen before. Whiskey America investigates how best to enjoy the new whiskies - in cocktails, with food, mixed or straight - and looks forward to where these exciting American spirits are going next.
