Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Art of Distillng Whiskey and Other Spirits is an encyclopedic guide to the thousand-year history and dynamic future of the distillation of whiskey, vodka, gin, rum, brandy, and more.  This carefully researched book will give the reader a comprehensive understanding and appreciation of just what is acutally in those bottles on the back bar.This book shows how the basic ingredients—water and grain—are transformed into a full range of superb, timeless liquors and even moonshine. Most other books on spirits chronicle the historical side of distilling or focus on the flavors of various vingages, but in this book, the actual craft of distilling is covered in depth. 

Readers will find a thorough examination of distilling techniques along with information on the varieties of stills and equipment used to create these exquisite libations. Whether you are an industry professional, a novice, or simply appreciate a fine dram, this is a must-have book for you. 

Synopsis:

This book is a backstage pass into the world of small-scale distilling of whiskies, gins, vodkas, brandies, and more.
