Heather Greene has the best job ever: she’s a professional whiskey taster! She travels all over the world tasting whiskey, scotch, and bourbon. She has received a lot of attention for being one of the few women with expertise in this field. When she’s not sipping scotch at the Scotch Malt Whiskey Society in Edinburgh, she’s attending to her duties as a whiskey sommelier and teaching classes at a Manhattan restaurant. Now, with the publication of Whiskey Distilled (Penguin Press, $25), Greene can add author to her resumé. The popularity of the whiskies is on the rise worldwide and so is the demand to understand and appreciate them. Whiskey Distilled gives whiskey lovers (or those who aspire to be whiskey lovers) everything they need to know to understand the “water of life.” Greene guides you through the whiskey-making process, outlining how to taste whiskey, how to distinguish and select the right brand for you, and even how to mix cocktails and stock your home bar.
