Review in Publishers Weekly:

Bourbon Justice: How Whiskey Law Shaped America

Brian F. Haara

Review in Modern Thirst:

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