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.
Bought this for a friend however ended up spending a day reading it myself!
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!
