"The Wilken Family Home Cooking Album" was published by Jos. S. Finch & Co. Inc. and copyrighted 1935. Wilken Family whiskey was advertised as "Always $1.00 or under a pint"! The introduction reads:" I just forget which one of us it was at first sprung the idea, but one time a while ago when we were all siting around after one of Ma Wilken's crackerjack suppers, one of us pops up sudden like and says look here everybody--seeing folks are finding Te Wilken Family Blended Whiskey so much to their liking, what if ever they were to get a taste of our Family's home cooking..." and thus this paper back book was born.
Included are "family" photos of Ma, Pa and the boys not only making the whiskey but enjoying it in all types of settings. Recipes not only include drink mixes but savory and sweets too.
This paper booklet is in good condition. There is a spot on the front cover where a label was removed. The binding is tight, the pages minimally yellowed and very clean.
A fun look back on family life at the distillery!
