Quick synopsis of the review
An amusing book, but who would trust a baby to mix you a decent cocktail ?
A must read reference for anyone who wishes to learn about spirits and what to do with them. An excellent and well organized compendium.
The Whole Earth Catalog of Small Distillers (for North America)
An excellent and yet still portable book that is a great reference no matter what your level of expertise.Don’t got to Scotland ( or your local ) before you read it and bring it along !
Finally a sensible, methodical and easy to understand book on how to mix cocktails and create your own drinks. Highly recommended !
The best book on Genever you will find in the English language. A must have for students of Gin of all types.
A must have book for any Anthony Bourdain and/or No Reservations fan. Just wish it was in folio (coffee table book size) format.
I highly reccomend the Bartenders Bible by Gary Regan. Get the spiral bound , lay flat version.
I wish this was written years ago. Would have saved me a lot of headaches .
It would also have been a huge benefit to some of the competitors I have seen over the many years of being a judge at competitions
Possibly on of the best books written on drinking and how to behave while drinking ever !!
Drinking version of Martines Hand Book of Etiquette and Guid To True Politeness (Arthur Martine 1866)
Mr Osborne’s style, wit, and humor makes this not only an interesting read, but a true joy. A rare example of prose and style that will delight anyone who reads and drinks – preferably at the same time.
Mr Greene has captured the magic of Hemingway in a bottle and teaches you how to build your own through this book.
An excellent, well written reference book on distilling full of good information – unlike the forest of moonshine how to books, this book is factual, technical, and probably won’t kill you. Highly recommended !
Probably one of the best books on classic cocktails on the market and unlike some of my other favs, small enough to carry with you if necessary.
Very informative, in depth analysis of the vodka phenomenon. As easy and entertaining to read as vodka is to drink.
Whisky Dreams is not your average whiskey book, with endless reviews of various whiskies and a selection of (the same old) cocktail recipes – far from it. Easily one of the best whisky cookbooks I have ever read.
