‘It’s good to not write a more sophisticated book or pack more detail onto each page…it is rocket science impressive’
In latest years, gin has shed its old-fashioned image and been reborn as a hot and hip spirit. The number of brands grows on a daily basis and bartenders – and consumers – are now beginning to re-examine gin as a quality base spirit for drinks both simple and complex.
Now, with more brands to be had than ever before, it’s the time to set out what makes gin special, what its flavours are and how to get the most out of the brands you buy. With this book as your guide, discover:
How gin is made
What a botanical is and how they have an effect on a gin’s flavour
What the difference between Dutch, London, Scottish, Spanish and American gins is
How you drink them to maximise your pleasure
Whether there is life beyond the gin & tonic (yes!)
The body of the book covers 120 gins which Dave has tested four ways – with tonic, with lemonade, in a negroni and in a martini – and then scored. In addition, each gin is categorised according to an ingenious flavour camp system, which highlights its core properties and lets you be aware how you’ll be able to best drink it, and due to this fact enjoy it.
