I found this book available online through Google Books. It seems to be for persons who have a liquor related business as an informational text to help grow and protect their interests.

Thanks, Timothy. The fact that it is digitized, does this mean I can buy it and read it online? How would I do that (if you know)?

Just hit the download pdf button on the right

from the download:"This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project
to make the world’s books discoverable online.
It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that’s often difficult to discover"

I have been looking this over this evening and found some interesting information.

p. 158. In the case of Thomas Ward of Newark, who was arrested and fined for selling whiskey under proof and artificially colored, the Ohio Supreme Court upheld an earlier decision holding that the sale of adulterated whiskey violates the state's pure food law. This was in 1897. On p. 300 we learn that Ohio requires all whiskey be sold at at least 100 proof.

p. 176. A trademark case pitting Labrot and Graham against James E. Pepper about use of the words “Pepper” and “Old Pepper” as trademarks.

p. 345. Does air improve the quality of whiskey?

p. 370. Why does whiskey gain or lose in proof during aging?

p. 372. How to rid whiskey of iron contamination.
