The Jewish Drinking Show: Jews in American Distilling History

May is Jewish American Heritage Month, and in honor of that, this week, Rabbi Drew and guest Maggie Kimberl discuss Jews in American distilling.

Despite what we may think about distilling in America, in general, and Bourbon, in particular, Jews have been involved in significant ways in American distilling history.

Maggie Kimberl is the Bourbon Women’s Association’s President and American Whiskey Magazine’s Content Editor. She is a freelance spirits journalist focusing on whiskey culture in the United States, though she considers herself “geographically blessed” to live in the epicenter of the Bourbon world, Louisville, Kentucky. When she’s not covering the Bourbon beat, you can find her browsing through vintage vinyl with her kids or tending to her homegrown tomatoes. You can follow her on TwitterInstagram, and Facebook.
