We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be publishing Warehouse H: The Story of Blanton’s Bourbon, America’s Most Influential Whiskey, by Dominic Guglielmi. Look for Warehouse H this fall!
Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon isn’t just a popular brand of whiskey; its launch in 1984 was historic. As the first single-barrel bourbon, it helped define a new “super-premium” category of spirit, and only the choicest barrels are selected and bottled. Together with other super-premium brands launched in the years following Blanton’s debut, its release sowed the seeds of a twenty-first-century bourbon boom that saved the American whiskey industry from near collapse.
Along with its historic rise, Blanton’s is now one of the world’s most sought-after whiskeys. While it maintains legions of loyal fans who line up to deplete liquor store shelves, the hype surrounding the brand is often the subject of debate, as is the quality of the bourbon itself.
Warehouse H dives deep into the story behind the brand, explores its origins, and documents the unlikely rise and contribution of the first single-barrel bourbon. In addition, it is a catalog of all known Blanton’s releases, some exceptionally rare, with insights and anecdotes capturing all things Blanton’s, from its inception to its present-day popularity.
“Warehouse H unveils the history and secrets of Blanton’s—the most polarizing bourbon brand—in a remarkable story of perseverance, the power of marketing, and the allure of novelty, along with an entertaining take on what many consider to be irrational exuberance. Guglielmi brings a fresh perspective from a position of true admiration, making the case for why Blanton’s is America’s most influential whiskey.”—Brian Haara, author of Bourbon Justice: How Whiskey Law Shaped America
