Fred Minnick, local writer and whiskey enthusiast, will be on Keep Louisville Literary Thursday, June 5th at 1:00 P.M. on ARTxFM to speak about his book Whiskey Women: The Untold Story of How Women Saved Bourbon, Scotch, and Irish Whiskey. Tales of the Cocktail, a venerated industry publication, recently nominated Whiskey Women for its Book of the Year Award.
Like a well-crafted vintage, Whiskey Women goes down smooth and requires no chaser. It reveals how since ancient times women have had an instrumental role in the discovery, creation, and distribution (legal and otherwise) of everybody’s favorite poison. We’ll speak about how Fred conducted his research, his favorite whiskeys and watering holes, and what kinds of projects he has in store for the future.
