Bourbon Books

Poor Richard's Books hosted authors Susan Reigler and Michael Veach during Bourbonanza.

Bourbon authority, Veach, explains in Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey: An American Heritage, how bourbon went from "low-brow to top shelf."

Reigler, Executive Bourbon Steward and President of The Bourbon Women Association, has created Kentucky Bourbon Country: The Essential Travel Guide.  She has also authored several "Bourbon Cocktail" recipe books.

We will have those books and others written by Susan and Michael (including a few signed copies!), as well as a rich selection of books on bourbon tasting, bourbon history and cooking with bourbon. See our selection of bourbon-related books under "From our Store" on the left side of this page.
