Book Description

2 Nov 2009 Classified
An A-Z guide to over 80 of the world's most famous vodka brands. It contains recipes for famous vodka cocktails, as well as new ones for flavored vodkas. This is the latest addition to the successful "Classified" series. The word 'vodka' is the diminutive of 'water' in various Slavic languages. Made from grains, molasses, potatoes, even grapes, vodka is often drunk neat in eastern Europe and Scandinavia, but it is now ultra-fashionable elsewhere in the world, where it is best known as a base for famous cocktails such as the Bloody Mary, the Cosmopolitan and, of course, the Vodka Martini. "Vodka Classified" features an A-Z of vodka brands, both from the traditional producing countries - Russia, Poland, Finland, Sweden and the Baltic States - as well as from other newer distilleries worldwide, from Kazakhstan through Mexico to New Zealand. The text includes tasting notes on the different styles and flavors produced by the major brands. The book also covers the origins, history and regions of vodka production, along with illustrations. The final section contains recipes for mixing your own vodka cocktails, both classics and new ideas using the latest flavored vodkas.

More About the Author

I have been writing about wine, other drinks and restaurants since the beginning of the 1990s. In the past decade, my work has included a widely acclaimed cultural history of intoxication, Out Of It (Penguin) and the multi-disciplinary Humanity: An Emotional History (Atlantic, published in the United States as A Natural History of Human Emotions). My work has been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Polish, Russian, Chinese and Korean. I write for the Guardian Books site, as well as a number of specialist drink publications and websites, and I review books for World of Fine Wine magazine.

In 2010, after 16 years of living in Brighton, I headed southwest and am now in beautiful Torbay.

I've leafed through a couple of books on Vodka before but this is by far the best. The author has an accessible and witty style and the book is packed full of useful reviews of vodka. If you want to find out a bit more about this spirit and know which brands are worth a try, this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal Gift 8 Feb 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this as a gift, and it went down very well. Great quality book.

Only issue was it was delivered on a wet day and left on the doorstep, so the packaging and the book itself got wet :/

By Sergiy Didorenko - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
seems like author really likes to drink vodka.he likes almost every sample he describing.many unusual finds.many fundamental products are missing.absence of level of pricing equalized the level of products for inexperienced customer(even inside the brands).missing rather principal details of process of creation.
so... photografer was better
