So, what’s so special about this book?
– The World Atlas of Gin is the first book to cover the booming gin industry across the globe, country by country. Never has there been a more striking revolution in the world of distilled spirits than the current renaissance of gin. With small craft distilleries popping up all over the world, from Texas to Tasmania, more varieties and techniques being used than ever before, and a tapestry of tastes from light and citrusy to big bold savoury notes, gin’s appeal is extraordinarily wide and varied. From gin made in small batches from local botanicals, through to large facilities which make some of the world’s most recognized gin brands, World Atlas of Gin looks at everything from the botanical to the bottle: how and where botanicals are grown and harvested and their role within the flavour of gin; producers and the stories behind their brands; exactly where, and how, gins are made; and, country by country, the best examples to try. Global cocktails are covered too, including the history and country of origin of some of the best-known mixed gin drinks.
You will also find a whole page dedicated to the greek juniper spirit, GRACE GIN which is definetely a good reason for my fellow greek bartendes to own this book.
