This beauteous book profiles working distillery cats from around the country. While not as an important job as being a bookstore cat, this book shows the cats in all their glory. There are bonus cocktail recipes, although they have no catnip, so what's the point? [Atticus]

— From Distillery Cats


Distillery Cats contains the whimsical tales of working cats in distilleries around the world, with charming illustrations of the beloved mousers.

Distillery Cats cheekily tells the tale of the historical role of these spirited cats and their evolution from organic pest control to current brand ambassadors. James Beard Award-winning author (and noted cat enthusiast) Brad Thomas Parsons profiles 30 of the world's most adorable and lovable distillery cats, featuring "interviews," a hand-drawn portrait of each cat, plus trading card-style stat sheets with figures like "super-power" and "mice killed." Featuring 15 cocktail recipes to enjoy while you page through, Distillery Cats is a quirky but essential addition to any cat or spirits lover's bookshelf.
