Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gin is one of the world's great drinks—classless, genderless, truly international. It has a fascinating history, beginning with its origins in medieval monasteries as a cordial reputed to protect against the plague. More recently, gin has played a leading role in the revival of "cocktail culture" and the discerning drinker's rediscovery of spirits with character and tradition. Classic Gin covers the story and culture of the drink, how it is made, histories and tasting notes for all the classic gins, new arrivals in the premium sector, and gins from around the world. Additionally, there are also gin cocktail recipes and cooking tips. The book explains what makes each classic brand special, depending on which combination of root herbs and botanicals is used—juniper, coriander, angelica, lemon peel, cassia, ginger, nutmeg, or others. Both informative and entertaining, Classic Gin will enhance the pleasure of all who enjoy this spirit. Geraldine Coates' previous book was Discovering Gin.

Synopsis:

Gin is the world's second favourite spirit - a drink with popular appeal. This book examines its history, from its roots as a medicine through to its Prohibition heyday in 1920s USA. It also presents the distilling processes and tasting notes for all the classic gin brands from around the world.

Synopsis:

An ideal connoisseur companion for all gin aficionados, rich in information and humour alike.
