“Bourbon is the American Spirit, both blessing and bane served neat or on the rocks. To know its story is to know our own.” Author Dane Huckelbridge wrote that in his book Bourbon: A History of the American Spirit. Technically, bourbon has to be made in Kentucky, but now producers in the mid-Atlantic region are working to create their own variations.
Huckelbridge will be talking about his book tomorrow at the Homewood Museum in Baltimore at 6pm, along with mixologist Corey Polyoka, who works with Woodberry Kitchen. More details here. Tom Hall talks with them both in advance of the event.
