    Kate Hopkins knew there had to be more to whiskey than using it a mixer with Sunny Delight. She had an unquenchable thirst to learn more about 'the drink' and, accompanied by her friend Krysta, set out on an ambitious itinerary through Ireland, Scotland, Canada, and the United States researching its history and sampling as many drams as possible along the way. Hopkins visited historians and pub owners, went to distilleries and tasting rooms, and interviewed the aficionados and the common drinkers, all in pursuit of stories about whiskey. The result is a fun and engaging travelogue in search of the perfect shot.

    Ah whiskey, that most dear and forgiving of companions. Where would the world be without you? That's not a question Kate Hopkins wanted to consider, and instead the noted food blogger and comedian set out to quench her powerful thirst for, ahem, knowledge about this most powerful of spirits. '99 Drams of Whiskey' finds Hopkins in Ireland, in Soctland, and then back to the New World--first home of bourbon--as she discovers the powerful hold each variation of whiskey has on the pride and personalities of its local advocates. Hopkins blends research, storytelling, and her trademark sense of humor masterfully in this excellent memoir!
