Big Shots: The Men Behind the Booze
Don't be surprised if you start gazing at your bottles of Jack Daniels and Bacardi a little bit differently after you read Big Shots. It's OK - it's just because you'll know them a whole lot better. This is one of the funnier and better-written booze books we've read, but it's also well-researched and chock full of interesting facts about the liquors and their creators, as well as bonus general info on cocktails and boozes.
You may consider Jack Daniel an old friend, Jose Cuervo a long-respected adversary, and Captain Morgan a trusted companion on many a foggy yet unforgettable adventure. But, as with so many drinking buddies, you probably don't know a thing about who they really are. Now, A.J. Baime, articles editor for Playboy magazine, offers a crash course on the men behind our favorite labels, including: Jim Beam * Jack Daniel * Jose Cuervo * Johnnie Walker * Baileys Smirnoff * Bacardi * Seagram * Captain Morgan * Dom Perignon Beefeater * Hennessy
