Early trades

There's a lot of history and 'lore' behind bourbon so discuss both here.

Early trades

Unread postby delaware_phoenix » Wed Sep 08, 2010 4:02 pm

I discovered a book that was quite interesting, and realized that there wasn't much discussion on the trades of the early whiskey years, both colonial and post Revolutionary War era. How things were made back then, seems like something of interest.

Colonial craftsmen and the beginnings of American industry

I'm sure somewhere the cooper's trade is discussed, if not in this book, in related ones. Happy reading!
