Driven by legacy and passion, today’s distillers are creating a new southern tradition--one that you can now explore with an inimitable writer. Each Liquor Trail covers one or several states and features particularly worthy distilleries that Purvis has personally selected. The trails also feature maps, a complete listing of distilleries in each territory, on-site photographs, and some dynamite drink recipes direct from the distillers.

"This handy reference book is a collection of trail maps to distilleries, recipes for cocktails, and interviews with the men and women who are leading the craft spirits charge throughout the South."--Garden & Gun
“I maintain a strict personal policy that if Kathleen Purvis guides me to a drink, I drink it. She's never steered me wrong (especially when it comes to bourbon), and I'm thrilled that everyone will now get to benefit from her rigorous, wise, witty road map.”--Kat Kinsman, author of Hi, Anxiety: Life with a Bad Case of Nerves
“Kathleen Purvis offers a timely introduction to the remarkable flourishing of craft distilling and the wide range of spirits and styles that are available in the South today. She provides fascinating context for the rise of the craft movement in the twenty-first century, engagingly telling the stories of the distillers and their businesses. But Purvis also offers still more: a unique way for readers to explore the southern landscape and culture.”--Robert F. Moss, author of Southern Spirits: 400 Years of Drinking in the American South
