Noah Rothbaum is The Daily Beast's Chief Cocktail Correspondent. He is also the author of the book The Art of American Whiskey: A Visual History of the Nation’s Most Storied Spirit, through 100 Iconic Labels (Ten Speed Press), which was published in the spring of 2015, and the associate editor of the forthcoming The Oxford Companion to Spirits and Cocktails (Oxford University Press), which will be published in the fall of 2017. Rothbaum’s first book, The Business of Spirits: How Savvy Marketers, Innovative Distillers, and Entrepreneurs Changed How We Drink (Kaplan), was published in 2007.

He was the founding editor-in-chief of Liquor.com, where under his leadership the site won the 2013 James Beard Award for its “How to Cocktail” video series and the 2012 Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Award for Best Cocktail Writing.

According to Chicago magazine’s chief dining critic, Jeff Ruby, “Rothbaum knows drinking like Newton knew gravity, but he’s not all high and mighty about it, creating laws and whatnot.” And The Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy blog called him “one of the smartest tipplers (and writers on spirits) we know.”

Rothbaum has written for The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Food & Wine, Food Network Magazine, Gastronomica, Esquire, Details, Men’s Journal, Men’s Fitness, Life, NYMag.com, TheAtlantic.com and Portfolio.com.
