Local Author Event: Kathleen Purvis - Distilling the South

Intrepid Kathleen Purvis traveled extensively throughout the South to create this first-ever guide to the region’s burgeoning craft liquor movement, capturing her journey in the creation of six original Liquor Trails. As fascinating as the craft itself are the distillers’ experiences and backstories. Purvis chronicles them with verve and insight, bringing her knowledge of southern foodways and traditions to bear on the flourishing of the distiller’s art. She shows how new entrepreneurs, part of the all-American food and drink renaissance, are positioning themselves throughout the South to find both the inspiration and land ranging from West Virginia to Louisiana for their farm- or farm-ingredients-based distilleries.
