Joel Harrison & Neil Ridley are at the forefront of providing expertise and innovation in the spirits world. From whisky to gin, cognac to exotic drinks, the duo has a wealth of knowledge to share with audiences across the globe. They write about whisky on their award-winning website Caskstrength.net and regularly pen articles and whisky features for a number of different publications such as Whisky Magazine, Imbibe and the Evening Standard, as well as becoming judges for the World Whisky Awards and the prestigious I.W.S.C. awards.

Joel and Neil approach the drinks world with an irreverent, independently-minded spirit and, in the last two years, the duo have hosted over 250 whisky and other spirits tastings around the world from Japan to Lithuania.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Adam Delord on 9 Oct 2014
Format: Hardcover
This book pretty much sums everything up in conveniently easy to read chapters for the budding enthusiast. The stories that the authors choose are at times funny as well as informative and there's enough technical info to highlight how the craft of spirits has spread around the globe, without becoming too intense.

It's the interviews that are the undoubted highlights though. Each chapter has what the authors call a 'Maverick' and I particularly enjoyed reading about Dan Aykroyd's vodka, as well as the guy with a gin distillery in his front room. All in all, this is a really solid guide for anyone looking to learn about spirits, with feeling worn out by jargon.

A perfect primer for all spirits 12 Nov 2014

Genius. A perfect primer for all spirits, and the "Mavericks" and "Recommended" sections ensure there is plenty to learn for bartenders and drinks-business professionals, too.
