Fred Minnick presents Bourbon Curious: A Simple Tasting Guide for the Savvy Drinker
In conversation with Bill Samuels, Jr. of Maker's Mark
Talk and bourbon tasting to follow
In Bourbon Curious, award-winning whiskey writer Fred Minnick (author of Whiskey Women) creates an easy-to-read interactive tasting journey that helps consumers select bourbons based on their flavor preferences. Using the same tasting principles he offers in his Kentucky Derby Museum classes and as a judge at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Minnick cuts to the chase, and the book’s simple, flavor-driven style offers a unique perspective in the world of whiskey books. Minnick talks about the history and future of whiskey with Bill Samuels Jr., chairman emeritus of Maker's Mark, and offers a guided tasting for audience members at Greenlight.
