Lots of people are talking about Bourbon Justice.  Here are some of my favorites:

Wisconsin Lawyer, February 12, 2019 (Bourbon Justice uses court and legal records to unearth the facts behind the legend and lore of bourbon in an enjoyable and entertaining read.)

LF Living, February 2019 (Bourbon Justice takes a unique approach to finding true bourbon history.)

East End Living, December 2018 (“Bourbon Justice is a must-add to your holiday shopping list.”)

Bourbon and Barns, December 13, 2018 (“Current-day brands do not always tell these intriguing historical stories, but instead some of them get too wrapped up in marketing and exaggeration.  Truth is better than fiction for most storied brands.”)

WDRB News, Louisville, December 3, 2018 (Haara covers “everything from what makes it bourbon in the first place and common misconceptions (as even the Kentucky Supreme Court recently got wrong, bourbon has no minimum aging period) to the games brands play with the myriad of distilleries that exist only on paper.”)

Insider Louisville, November 16, 2018 (“7 Questions with Brian F. Haara”)

Bar Briefs, November 1, 2018 (“On his first page, Brian boldly proclaims that bourbon’s history is ‘the foundation of American commercial law.’  By page 152, it’s hard to disagree.  Bourbon, very much like the law, is a generational craft—and I’m grateful for this opportunity to study it.”)

Bourbon Guy, October 30, 2018 (“In the end, you will learn something about bourbon, you will learn something about business, and you will learn something about the less talked about history that made America the country it is today. I highly recommend that you run right out and buy it.”)

Alcohol Professor, October 23, 2018 (“To understand the history of whiskey in America is to understand the history of America itself, and Brian Haara’s new book, Bourbon Justice, with a foreword by bourbon historian Fred Minnick, does an excellent job of fleshing out the intersections between the two.”)

Modern Thirst, October 19, 2018 (“It’s exactly what I hoped it would be.  It’s a fast-paced romp through the centuries of torts and lawsuits involving presidents, distillers, rectifiers, legal interlopers, and more.  It’s like his blog on steroids.  And that’s a great thing.”)

Bourbon & Banter, October 18, 2018 (“The material is fresh and current, and will appeal both to the newly interested and the experts alike. Bourbon Justice feels like a complete journey through history, bringing it full circle from Colonel Taylor’s concerns of old to today’s perils of purchasing adulterated or counterfeit whiskey on the secondary market. It’s a shockingly good debut book and one that should be on everybody’s Holiday shopping list.”)

New Bourbon Drinker, October 8, 2018 (Bourbon Justice “actually digs into the law cases behind Bourbon, and presents the information in a very enjoyable read.  Who knew that reading about law cases could actually be interesting?”)

New Worlder, September 11, 2018 (“This book tracks the history of bourbon and bourbon law and uses it as the base for growth of the United States as a nation. Beginning in the frontier through the restless entrepreneurial boon of the spirit, bourbon is responsible for many areas of law, such as trademark, breach of contract, fraud, governmental regulation and taxation, and consumer protection. More than just the history of a spirit, Bourbon Justice tells a part of the larger American story.”)
