It was apparent when picking this book up that it was constructed and published using great thought, care, and quality materials. The thickness of the individual pages make for a hefty book, which coincidentally is not far off from a freshly sealed bottle of bourbon, and labeled just as handsomely by the way. The rich hues of browns, oranges, and copper that adorn the cover art all provide a glimpse of what you will see once you start turning the pages.
With sections simply titled Copper, Grains And Mills, and Barrels, Peachee lets us in on what she considers the most important components of our distilling heritage and the process that was, and still is in many instances, used in the distillation of bourbon. She backs it up with spectacular, yet unassuming photos of everything involved, from the initial welding to the finished barrels on their way to the distiller.
