5.0 out of 5 stars nice product 19 Jun 2014
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
Bought as a gift. It is a ring binder type book which means it will be easier to keep pages open. I cannot comment on the quality of the text but it looked really well produced and perfect for a vintage themed present.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So much more than a simple recipe book, Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails is a wonderful literary journey through the world of the cocktail. Ever informative, but never boring, this book is an absolute must-have for anyone with even a passing interest in cocktails. A staple for every drinks professional, and a bloody good read for everyone else. Superb!
