CULINARY HISTORIANS OF NEW YORK AND THE NATIONAL ARTS CLUB PRESENT A HOLIDAY PROGRAM

"Whiskey Women"
with Fred Minnick

Monday, December 8, 2014

The stereotype of the ascot-wearing, whiskey-drinking gentleman is well established. But as Fred Minnick, author of Whiskey Women: The Untold Story of How Women Saved Bourbon, Scotch and Irish Whiskey, tells it, the spirits those mythical gents drank were developed by women, who also invented beer and distillation and owned major brands including Bushmills, Laphroaig and Maker's Mark. Fred Minnick will describe the little-known history of the females who transformed the industry, from Mesopotamia's first beer brewers and distillers, to rowdy American bootleggers during Prohibition, to today's multi-billion dollar business.

Fred Minnick is a writer and photographer based in Louisville, Kentucky, whose work has appeared in Whisky Magazine and Whisky Advocate. He is the Bourbon Authority for the Kentucky Derby Museum and judges the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and the World Whiskies Awards. He often wears an ascot.

Join us for this festive holiday gathering. A reception before the talk will feature three whiskey women, all New York distillers -- Nicole Austin of Kings County Distillery, Bianca Miraglia of Uncouth Vermouth, and Bridget Firtle of Owney's Rum -- pouring tastes of their locally-made spirits.
