Living Proof: Onyx Moonshine's Journey to Revive the American Spirit (Book Giveaway!)

Living Proof: Onyx Moonshine's Journey to Revive the American Spirit

Update 10/28/15: Congratulations to Sheila - you can expect your book delivered directly from Amazon soon!

Connecticut native and New England moonshiner Adam von Gootkin failed out of college after one semester. His entrepreneurial nature drove him to start a business venture with his best friend, Peter Kowalczyk, and in 2011, the two founded Onyx Spirits, successfully introducing the world to the first ultra-premium American moonshine made in East Hartford, Connecticut.

Now you can read Adam's incredible story in the recently-released book, Living Proof: Onyx Moonshine's Journey to Revive the American Spirit. In it, Adam wittily tells the story of Onyx through his own life's narrative, offering useful business lessons to every would-be entrepreneur along the way. Adam possesses a limitless vision along with an undying belief that everything he imagines is possible. This book is not only an inspiration but also an honest guide to the trial-and-error process of business-building. 

A Couple in the Kitchen has been moved by Adam's spirit (pun intended?) and business acumen since we met him and Pete in early 2012 (read about that meeting here). We've made recipes with Onyx, promoted Onyx to our friends, and have been good friends and supporters of the Onyx Spirits family. We even attended the book launch last week at the Mark Twain House in Hartford (great times!).

For all those reasons, we'd like to offer you a chance to win a copy of Adam's book. Follow this link for a chance to win Living Proof via Amazon Giveaways:
