Fred Minnick

Wall Street Journal best-selling author Fred Minnick writes about drinking for a living. How good is that? Seriously, he wrote THE history on “Bourbon,” THE tasting guide on bourbon in “Bourbon Curious,” THE book on rum in “Rum Curious” and important histories/tasting journeys in “Mead” and “Whiskey Women,” most of which are available in audiobook form through Audible. When he's not writing books, he writes for Whisky Advocate, Whisky Magazine, and Covey Rise; or he's serving as the Bourbon Authority for the Kentucky Derby Museum or curating the bourbon lineup for the acclaimed festival Bourbon & Beyond. He's also the editor-in-chief of Bourbon+. Let's face it, Minnick often says, "I'm living the dream." Unlike many of us who say that, he really is. Visit
