Title: Whiskey: What It Is and How It Came to Be” 

Speaker: Kevin R. Kosar

 

 

Description:  Be it bourbon, rye, corn, Irish, or Scotch, whiskey has an infamous and celebrated history.  Kevin R. Kosar will discuss what whiskey is, how it is made, and how the types of whiskey differ.  He'll also explain the drink's history, from its obscure medieval origins as a sometimes lethal, herb-infused concoction to the high-quality, meticulously crafted liquor, globally traded product that it is today.

 

Speaker's bio: Kevin R. Kosar founded AlcoholReviews.com in 1998. He is the author of Whiskey: A Global History (London: Reaktion, 2010), and a contributor to the Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America (2004). Kosar has served as a judge at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, co-hosted "Vodka Festival" in New York City's Grand Central Station, and won an Academy of Wine Communications' wine writer award.
