Blog of the Month: Sipp'n Corn
Sipp'n Corn is a blog that caters to my twin loves of law and history; the tag line is "Blogging about bourbon as told through the rich history of American lawsuits..." Kentucky lawyer Brian Haara has done some great research and presented some fascinating reports on old legal cases about bourbon. You can learn a lot of history through court cases, and Haara uses published decisions to tell an interesting history of the Labrot & Graham Distillery (now Woodford Reserve) and demonstrate how, a century ago, sourcing whiskey and not disclosing the distiller was considered by one court to be "a fraud on the public."
If you have an interest in whiskey history, Sipp'n Corn is a must-read.
