Colonial Spirits: A Toast To Our Drunken History


This product is sold out

Colonial Spirits offers a peek into the barrooms and battlefields of the revolution, and a sip from the punch bowls of our ancestors. Within its pages you'll find the stories behind everything from our founding fathers' favorite tipples to the surprising origins of American beer, wine, rum, and whiskey. This isn't a simple history, or even a recipe book: it's an almanac of alcohol and the birth of our nation, with lists, charts, and recipes alongside tall tales and folklore.
