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.

It gives an intricate breakdown to the history and development of the main types of spirits. Its very well layed out, and also includes recent innovators in the various fields.

As an added bonus there are also a ahndfull of classic recipes for cocktails for each of the spirits listed here.

Very impressed and great as a pick up and read book, has certainly improved my knowledge of spirits!
